Thread: Post Vasectomy Semen Check

  1. #1

    Default Post Vasectomy Semen Check

    I am looking for the CPT code for a Post Vasectomy Semen check. We examine the specimen and then it is centrifuged to further evaluate. So we are doing the analysis and isolation. I have been given the code 89260 to use and want to verify that this is correct.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    55250 Removal of sperm duct(s) Vasectomy, unilateral or bilateral (separate procedure), including postoperative semen examination(s). Can we bill them separately?

    We are the lab and only do testing on the specimen.

    What about G0027 with Dx Z30.8? It takes a lot of time for the nurses to examine the specimen and count the sperm (if sperm are present)
