Cystourethroscopic exam

Bonnie Posted Wed 22nd of April, 2015 15:34:51 PM

Could you please tell me correct code for this procedure:
Cystourethroscopic exam initiated under steril water irrigation. Bladder irrigated for FISH and cytology.

Thank you

Report CPT code 52000 with 51700-59 modifier.

Your documents should support -59 modifier as, the irrigation was done to collect the sample not for increasing visibility for cystourethroscopy.
