    Question Cystoscopy following BSO?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our gyno almost always does a cystoscopy after his procedures to check for any bladder damage, especially with BSOs, anterior/posterior repair, SUI repair, LAVH's, etc.

    Is it correct to code the cystoscopy in addition to the main procedure? I don't have any software or resource that tells me if a cystoscopy is bundled with any of these other procedures.

    I could not find any bundled code for these procedures together nor as a component diagnostic.

    There are about 2681 gyn procedures for benign conditions in which the ureters are at risk of injury.
    So it is justifiable in many procedures as a medical necessity and it is upto the physician 's decision at the time of surgery or even as a planned combined procedure.
    As it is, I feel that it should be coded separately with a modifier.
    I wish we get an expert openion.
