    AAPC: Back to School
    Help!I have a op report where the physician wants to code a 52005, 52235, and a 52332. CCI edits bundle the 52005 and 52332 with a 0 edit so I know I can't bill the 52005. Can I bill the 52235 and 52332 with a 59 on the 52332? or would this be unbundling??

    I think it depends on why you are placing the stent. Why are you placing the stent? Was the bladder tumor located near the ureter orfice?
