RT post/ant shoulder joint injection and RT subacromial bursa injection
Will you please help with the coding for this scenario below? "The patient's posterolateral and anterolateral shoulder area was cleaned and prepped in a sterile fashion utilizing Chloraprep. I then proceeded to place a 25 gauge, 1 inch needle through the skin and advanced it into the subacromial bursa (posterior). I then proceeded to inject, after negative aspiration, a 3 mL solution containing 0.2% Ropivacaine and PF Dexamethasone. I then proceeded to perform posterior and anterior intra-articular shoulder joint (glenohumeral joint) injection resulting in a right subacromial bursa injection and right posterior and anterior intra-articular shoulder joint injection with local and steroid." Would this be coded as 20610-RT x 2 units, or just 20610-RT x 1 unit?"
