    Does anybody know the code for an exam under anesthesia for a cervical biopsy?

    Thanks,

    The exam would bundle into the biopsy code, wouldnt it? I'm no gyn guru, but thats how it works for going into the neighboring..uh..area. =)

    The exam has a higher RVU and we would code the higher RVU. So instead of coding the 57500, we code the EUA. I can't seem to find the EUA anywhere...

    Never mind:...lol I found the code, its 57410 and the biopsy is more RVU's. I thought the EUA was a different code. So in this case I will code the 57500 as it is a higher RVU...but thanks for your input...
