    Question Need help coding-insertion of mesh-vaginal repair
    Medical Coding Books
    If I have a Dr that does a sx w/ 57260 (combined anteroposterior colporrhaphy), 57285 (Paravaginal defect repair, vaginal approach) and he uses mesh for all three sites, CPT says 57267 (insertion of mesh) is for each site, so that means I can code:
    57260, 57267 X2
    57285, 57267
    Right?

    According to CPT, you are correct, but I would also check CCI edits for bundling issues.
