stent exchange: 52332 AND 52310?

  1. Default stent exchange: 52332 AND 52310?
    Medical Coding Books
    Is is proper to code both 52332 insertion of indwelling stent 592.1 with 52310 996.30 for a case were the left ureteral stent migrated and the stent was removed and replaced in an ASC?

    CCI edit book indicates they can't be coded together, but I have a training manual that indicates it should be coded as 52332 592.1
    52310-51 996.30

    Any opinions????????

    Thanks!

    Have you looked at 50382-50386 these are the removal and replacement codes. See if any of these will help you?

    you will only code 52332 since 52310 is bundled.

  5. Default
    What about using modifier 58 on the removal code (52310)? I do not often have to code with modifiers, but mod. 58 is for a related procedure/service by the same physician during the postoperative period.
