That is Correct Here is some more information, hope it helps!
Q. How are cystoscopic botulinum toxin A (Botox) injections into the bladder billed and reimbursed?
A. At present, there is not an accurate code available for cystoscopy with injection of botulinum toxin into the bladder. Reporting of this service at present is most accurately reflected with the use of the unlisted urinary code 53899, Botulimun toxin A (Botox) J0585
Q: Our doctor has been performing a cystoscopy (52000) along with a Botox injection. We should be using CPT code 53899 for the injection, correct? She is doing this procedure at the hospital, so she therefore cannot bill for the actual medication, correct? She can only bill for doing the injection?
A: Per CPT Assistant the use of code 53899 for the Botox injection is correct. Because code 52000 is a separate procedure code I would not code 52000 and 53899 together; instead I would utilize code 53899 to indicate both the cystoscopy and the Botox injection. You are correct in that the physician can only bill for the injection procedure.
