    Hi,

    Depomedrol is methylprednisolone acetate. It comes in three strengths of 20mg, 40mg and 80mg.

    PFA, Supercoder coding newsletter which describes the best possible way to bill a drug with different strength in different scenarios.

    You should be billing J1040 for 2 units.

     

    Let us know in case of any further questions.
