The doctor preformed the following:
2. Bilateral stent removal
3. Bilateral retrograde pyelogram
4. Replacement of right ureteral stent
Which code do I use for these services and why?
SuperCoder Posted 1 Year(s) ago
The appropriate code for the above performed procedures is 52332 with 50 modifier.
Retrograde pyelogram can be coded using 74420.
Separate reimbursement is not allowed for a stent removal performed on the same day under any circumstance. Also, modifier cannot be used with these codes.
Hope this helps!
Further query is welcome.
