Orthopaedic Coding Q&A: Intra-Articular Injections and …


One of my providers wants to use J1885 Toradol (ketorolac) and administer it into the shoulder joint using 20610 large joint arthrocentesis code. The physician states that studies have shown this to be an effective use of the drug. Everything I have read about it states that it is administered via IM or IV using the CPT code 96372. Can you clarify whether this drug can be used and billed for payment using the CPT 20610 and J1885?


You are correct that the prescribing information for Toradol (ketorolac) injectable lists the routes of administration as IM and IV. For a drug like Depo-Medrol (methylprednisolone), the route of administration is listed as IM, intra-articular, soft tissue and intralesional. The decision to use a medication for off-label use is a medical one. However, the payors may have a payment policy that only reimburses when the drug is administered as directed and for the listed uses. Check with the individual payors and, based on that information, determine whether the service is reimbursable by the patient’s insurance or, if not, whether you have the ability to charge the patient directly for that service and medication.


We performed a tricompartment chondroplasty on a Medicare patient. This was the only procedure performed. Do we report the G code three times, or CPT code 29877?


The correct code is 29877 and, as you note, it is only reportable one time per knee per operative session.

Start a rewarding new career in the healthcare industry with a course from our Medical coding school! As a Medical Coding Specialist, you’ll help connect doctors, patients, hospitals and insurance companies. Without trained Medical Coders who can translate every diagnosis, procedure and supply into a handy code, the healthcare industry would come to a stand-still. And because nearly every visit to the doctor or hospital requires properly coded documentation, the demand for Medical Coding Specialists continues to grow.

Analyzing clinical statements and transforming verbal description of diseases, injuries, conditions, and procedures into numerical designation is called CODING. The purpose of this process is financial reimbursement. Hence this is also called as “Insurance coding.”This is designed by W.H.O for the classification of morbidity and mortality information, for statistical purpose, for indexing of hospital records by diseases and operations, for data storage and retrieval. It also provides access for epidemiological studies. This field generates Medical Coders who specialize in training program and a certification process. The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) and American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) offer certification in this field. A Clinical coder or Diagnostic coder is the one who analyzes clinical statements and assigns codes from a clinical classification. To describe a clinical picture of the patient, the code should be more precise than those needed only for statistical groupings. So the coder should have the knowledge of medical terminology. The development of the required skills takes both formative and summative training alongside experience.
