Urology/Fulguration

Cherie Posted Thu 03rd of December, 2015 12:10:05 PM

My Dr. always wants to bill 52001 w/ 52214, which can be unbundled w/ the proper modifier. But, most of the time, he is not fulgurating the areas that are listed for the 52214 (trigone, bladder neck, prostatic fossa, urethra, or periurethral glands) What would be the best code to use in this instance. He generally fulgurates different areas in the bladder. Thanks, just want to justify and clarify for the Dr.

Thanks for your query,

There is no specific code for such procedures. You can use unlisted procedure CPT code for that kind of scenario.
