    Default pessary cleaning??

    AAPC: Back to School
    What codes do you guys use if your doctor simply removes the pessary, cleans it and puts it back. I think I have confused myself....

    Thanks in advance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    what dx do you use with it? I have been using the reason why they had the pessary...ex...uterine prolapse. Is there something better?

    there is a HCPCS code for the pessary, I am sure- A4561, A4562. and a Vcode V 53 series. Cleansing would go with the E/M service
