Thread: foley catheter removal

  1. #1

    Default foley catheter removal

    AAPC: Back to School
    I thought removal of a foley catheter would be part of the e/m or is there a separate code for removal?



  2. #2


    non-incisional removal of foley catheter is included in the E&M. Endoscopic and incisional removal of foley is not included in the E&M.
