We are an IM office and we occasionally see patients who have or need foley caths. We just recently had a patient come in who had a foley cath in place that needed to be removed...I have the insertion code (51702) but can't seem to find a removal code anywhere...can we bill the removal? Am I just missing the code or is it not a billable service?

I remember this question coming up before. Yes, I think the removal is included in the EM service, but hope more will commment to this thread.
