WHAT CPT CODE OR HCPCS CODE CAN BE USED FOR A GLYCERINE SUPPOSITORY?

Bernadette Posted Fri 18th of October, 2013 12:35:26 PM

Hi,

We had administered a glycerine suppository for a patient who came in for constipation. Is there a CPT code and/or a HCPCS code we could bill for this supply? Would CPT code 99070 be appropriate?

Thanks!

CPT does not include a suppository insertion procedure code. That is bundled into the E/M visit.
