Renal Calculus

  1. Default Renal Calculus
    Medical Coding Books
    I am trying to figure out how to code a removal of renal calculus. They do this transurethral. The crosswalk for removal of a ureteral calculus says 00918 but in italics says "Report alternate code 00862 when calculus involves kidney or upper 1/3 of ureter." We have always used 00910. Which is correct?
    Thanks
