Hello Tammy,

Thank you for your question.

 

As per the above-mentioned diagnosis codes, there is no specific code for Diagnostic Laparoscopy performed on the bladder, hence, you are advised to report an unlisted procedure (CPT® code 51999- Unlisted laparoscopy procedure, bladder.

 

Hope that helps!

Thanks
