Hi -

I have a patient who had a TURP with a TUIP in 2013. He had a resection of the bladder neck contracture on June 23rd of this year, because of the TURP, I billed 52640. Medicare is denying it for frequency. Did I miss something?

Thanks in advance!

I believe 52640 is as stated the correct code for your clinical scenario. However, there seems to be a frequency problem where this code cannot be billed a second time. I would then consider 52500 with a diagnosis of N32.0
