    Question catheter

    AAPC: Back to School
    How would you code suprapubic catheter?

    The dx reads Neurogenic bladder with suprapubic catheter. I coded 596.54 but can't find code for suprapubic

    Thank you

    Default Suprapubic catheter

    For suprapubic catheter, If there is drainage, Suprapubic drainage 596.8 can be coded
