Thread: Biopsy with dilation and pyelograms

  1. #1

    Default Biopsy with dilation and pyelograms

    AAPC: Back to School
    The physician performs a dilation of the urethra, and also does a bladder biopsy with bilateral retrograde pyelograms. How would this be coded? I know the dilation bundles into the biopsy and the pyelograms bundle into the dilation. Can you bill 52204 with 52005-59? Thank You

    Personally, I would 52204 and 74420,26. Did you doctor perform the supervison of the pyelogram?
