    Default Potassium sensitivity test

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a provider that is going to perform this on a patient next week so I need to find out if anyone else has billed these or not. I believe it is being done for a diagnosis related to interstitial cystitis but can't be positive of that just yet. Thought I would get a jump start on coding. Any ideas?

    Default potassium sensitivity test

    we have done pst for a few years. I have used 51700 plus supplies j3480, j7040 and a4351. the cathetar code a4351 gets paid about 1/2 of the time.
    watch the units for the supplies.

    She codes the "bladder washes" for treatment of interstitial cystitis this way. Apparently one in the same procedures. Interesting.....Thanks for the information.
