    Medical Coding Books
    pt is scheduled to have an insertion of the testicular prosthesis (54660)...but dont i need to code for the prosthesis itself? and what code?
    thanks for your help!

    I believe the device for the implant is included in the fee for the professional charge (54660) and not separately reimbursed.

    What do you think?
    Pt. had previous testicular prosthesis that malfunction. New surgery had the original prosthesis placed back in scrotum. Should I code just 55120 & 54660 or should I code Unlisted procedure 55899? Thanks .
