  1. If you are coding an US/Kidney and there is documentation for the left and right kidney, but the report states the bladder was not visualized, would you code this as 76775 for limited?

    1. Well, this might depend on client guidelines. There might be a certain way they’d want that handled. (They might want it coded as a limited or sent back for an addendum so it could be coded as a complete if more info was put in the report). But, based on what you’re telling me…I would think it’s still a complete because they tried to see the bladder but couldn’t. But again, please doublecheck with your coding manager.
