Does anybody code these 52005 x 2 RT,LT or would you just bill the 52005 once. Plus the 74420 for the retrograde.

Asking for any thoughts. Sheila, CPC

Hi Sheila, I have heard this CPT is inherantly bilateral and it is inappropriate to add -50 or 52005 x2 or rt, lf. If your physician did perform the retrograde, definately bill for that service in addition to the catheter.
