    Question 50590 and 52005

    AAPC: Back to School
    Has anybody tried to bill 50590 and 5200550 together.

    Hi Linda,

    First, 52005 may not be used with modifier 50.
    "Lay Description
    Cystourethroscopy with insertion of a retrograde ureteral catheter into the ureter or ureters. Procedure may be done for radiographic or other diagnostic or therapeutic reasons (exclusive of radiology services or indwelling, Double "J" type ureteral stents)."

    If 52005 is a separately identifiable procedure, it may be unbundled from 50590 with a 59 modifier.
