Testicular sperm extraction by incision

    Doctor performed an incisional testicular sperm extraction for cryopreservation. I know about S4030, but this is a self-pay account. Would this be an unlisted code, 55899, or biopsy of testes, incisional, 54505? Any input would be appreciated.

    Since this is a self pay, you should still be able to use the S code or are you looking to associate it with a different code to come up with a fee?

    I'm just looking for the most appropriate code. S codes are generally used for BC/BS patients and they get kicked out of the electronic billing regularly. If I wasn't going to use an S code, would an unlisted code be more appropriate?
