    Default Radioactive seed implant prostate

    AAPC: Back to School
    What procedure code would I use for radioactive seed implant of the prostate?

    I do not have my book in front of me, but I believe it's 55875 and if ultrasound guidence was used there's a code for that too, 76965 with modifier -26 depending on where you doing the service.

    Default 55875

    Can the urologist and radiation oncologist both bill 55875?

    In my experience, the urologist places the transperineal placement of needles or catheters and the radiologist downloads the seeds?
