I have a question: if the patient is injected with 1ML of Kenalog 40mg 1 eye how many units should I use?

Kenalog injection can be billed in the below mentioned ways:
J3300 Injection, triamcinolone acetonide, preservative free, 1 mg
J3301 Injection, triamcinolone acetonide, not otherwise specified, 10 mg
J3302 Injection, triamcinolone diacetate, per 5 mg
J3303 Injection, triamcinolone hexacetonide, per 5 mg
Billing of units will depend on the type of the kenalog injection used. If preservative free kenalog (triamcinolone acetonide per 1mg) is used, then HCPCS code J3300 should be billed for 40 units.
If triamcinolone acetonide, per 10mg, not otherwise specified has been used, bill J3301 for 4 units.
For triamcinolone diacetate, per 5 mg, HCPCS code J3302 should be billed for 8 units
For triamcinolone hexacetonide, per 5 mg, HCPCS code J3303 should be billed for 8 units.
