Leave C2625 For Hospitals

Question: Our office wants to start charging for the actual cost of the ureteral stent when the urologist places it in the office. We would bill for the procedure using 52332, and I think that the HCPCS code for the stent is C2625. Can we do this?New York SubscriberAnswer: No, you should not report C2625 (Stent, non-coronary, temporary, with delivery system) in the office setting. This is a hospital charge code, and is not payable outside of the hospital charge report. There is no code for which payers will reimburse for the supply cost of the stent, which you place in the office. You should consider this included in the payment you receive for the procedure itself.
