Question: Today I injected a TMJ patient with 10 mg of Kenalog. How do you determine the code and units for the medicine used in this case?

Answer: Bill the Kenalog with HCPCS code J3301, which is for 10 mg. If you used more, then you’ll want to bill multiple units.

The units and codes for supplies such as Kenalog are in the HCPCS codebook, which is published by several companies. Update yours every year.
