    Default prostate sampling

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have been instructed to use G0416 for our Medicare patients. My question is: in addition to or instead of 55706?

    Any help appreciated

    G0416 is a pathology code and will replace the usual 88305. So it will go in addition to the 55706 procedure code. jb
