ARTHROCENTESIS
« on: October 21, 2008, 04:59:35 PM »
When billing for arthrocentesis (20600-10) with J3303 is it correct to add 90772 injection code to the service?

I have not heard of billing the 90772 along with the 20600 code.  The 20600 code indicates 'aspiration and/or injection'.  The 90772 is used to indicate an injection and then a separate code to indicate the material injected.

If anyone else has any experience with this code, please share.   :-\
