    Default Help with ESWL Code Please!

    AAPC: Back to School
    Patient had a RT kidney stone (592.0) and also a RT ureteral stone (592.1)
    With 2 separate sites on same side, may I use 50590 twice? With a modifier 51?
    Modifier 59?
    Patient has BCBS for insurance.

    I'd use it once. I'd use it twice is stones were being treated bilaterally.
