help with DXs and cpt codes

  1. Default help with DXs and cpt codes
    Exam Training Packages
    I need to code the DX for a perineal abscess and a gluteal abscess and the CPT codes for the following: the urologist did a flexible cystoscopy and an incision and drainage of the perineal and gluteal abscess. I was thinking of DXs of 682.2 and 682.5 and for the surgery a 54700 and a 52000-51. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I'm new to coding for a urologist.

  2. Default
    52000 -59
    Cystourethroscopy

    54700
    Incision and drainage of epididymis, testis and/or scrotal space (eg, abscess or hematoma)


    682.2 + 682.5 looks good to me

    Did the doctor preform the incision and drainage transurethrally? I mean through the cystoscope? Otherwise, you might need to look toward the cystoscopic codes (starting at 52000).
