49406 done twice

  1. Default 49406 done twice
    Medical Coding Books
    Procedure - CT fluoroscopic assisted catheter drainage is performed on right and left pelvis for pelvic fluid collection. There are 2 separate reports for RT and LT.
    CPT code for this procedure is 49406, but bilateral modifiers are not applicable for this code.
    So kindly suggest if i can bill it with 2 units or skip one report and bill with only one unit.


  2. Default answer?
    did you ever find the answer to this question? did you code it with 50 or x2? thanks!
