Urology/53447

Cherie Posted Wed 11th of November, 2015 07:55:28 AM

My Dr. removed all components of an AUS and only replaced the cuff at the same session. Would I use 53447 with a 52 modifier? Please advise. Thanks

Yes, if the provider removes or replaces any one of the component of artificial urinary sphincter, append modifier 52, Reduced services, with the code 53447.
