    I have a pt that had a left ureteroscopy w/ lithotripsy & a right ureteroscopy w/ stone manipulation. Can i bill both of these out since one is one the RT & one on the LT??

    Another question, can i bill the ureteroscopy bilateral? i have not seen this before and i want to make sure. Thanks so much for any help!!!
