    Question Seminal vesicle biopsy

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am somewhat new to urology and have been asked by on of the Dr if there is a seperate code for seminal vesicle biopsy. I looked in the CPT code book, but could not find a seperate code for this. Is there one????
    Thank you for your help.

    Smile Seminal vesicale

    The codes you are looking for are 55680, 55650

    if there are xray involve you will need to bill 74440 when done in the hospital bill with the 26 modifier.

    if in the office bill with out a modifier as (global).

    all the codes listed above are what you would use to bill for the Seminal Vesicle.

    hope this help
