Is there a cpt code ( not the hcpc code) for a routine digital rectal exam? As part of prostate screening?

Any suggestions would be helpful!

Thanks alot!

Happy thursday:d

I do not think there is a cpt code specifically for DRE, usually considered part of the E&M.

"Billing and payment for a DRE (G0102) is bundled into the payment for a covered evaluation and management service (CPT codes 99201 99456 and 99499) when the two services are furnished to a patient on the same day. If the DRE is the only service or is provided as part of an otherwise non-covered service, HCPCS code G0102 would be payable separately if all other coverage requirements are met."

Hope that helps :)
