57288 and 57287

Lynn Posted Fri 26th of February, 2016 13:30:05 PM

My doc removed eroded tvt sling and then placed a new sling. She is wondering if she can possibly bill for vaginal foreign body removal and then a placement of a new sling.

Greetings!
In this case, you should bill CPT code 57287 (Removal or revision of sling for stress incontinence (eg, fascia or synthetic)). This code includes both, removal of eroded sling and placement of a new sling.
Thanks.
