Thread: Prostate Massage-Help with CPT code

    Default Prostate Massage-Help with CPT code

    AAPC: Back to School
    My office is doing a prostate massage before taking a urine sample. Everything I have researched states that this is included in the DRE, but we are not performing the DRE. Can anyone help with this code?

    Default Dre

    Prostate massage appears to be a part of the clinical DRE exam. So if you are doing the Prostate massage you are essentially doing at least a partial DRE. Review the DG description.
