A patient with an abdominal mass and is diagnosed with a bladder tumor. The surgeon performs a cystourethroscopy with fulguration and resects an 8cm tumor. During this surgical session, the physician also performs a cystourethroscopy with the insertion of an indwelling urethral stent. Can i bill 52240 with 52282 or is 52282 bundled. there is no mention of temporary or permanent stenting so I am not sure.

You should query the surgeon to verify if it's a permanent or temporary stent - just to be extra sure. But 52282 is allowed with 52240.
