    Talking BCG Coding

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am trying to clarify the correct way of coding BCG. The nurse is doing the instillation of J9031. I would use 51720, J9031. A local Urology group is telling us to bill 99211 and J9031, doesn't make sense to me. There is no separate e/m, the visit is just for the instillation. Please advise.

    Use CPT 90586 & CPT 51720

    I have only been paid using 51720 w/ J9031. I wouldn't code 99211
