    How do I bill for joint injection and aspiration rt shoulder in an office? Also given Depot Medrol 20mg. Is it 99214 with modifer 25 ,20610, J1030 and 96372?
    Thank you.

    Injecttion of Depo Medrol:-
    If the injection is subcutaneous or intramuscular we can use the CPT® 96372, if it is intra-arterial, use CPT® 96373 and if it is an intravenous push, we can use 96374.
    But, 20610 itself is also correct if the injection is given in the joint.
    So, if there has been aspiration of shoulder joint and injection of Depo Medrol at shoulder, you can code as 20610 stands for aspiration and/or injection.
    Final Answer:-
