Thread: cath intro and Urodynamics

    Default cath intro and Urodynamics

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can the code 51701 insert of cath be billed with the Urodynamics codes? 51725 thru the 51798? I see all the instruments are inclusive, but what about introduction of the catheter?

    Thank you

    CPT 51701 is included in, for example, CPT 51726, 51795, 51784, and 51741. Unbundling is never allowed. I used the above codes as an example as those are some of the codes we use when doing our Urodynamic studies. Hope this helps.
