I code for 8 urologists.  Does anyone know the correct way to bill for a Medicare pt. receiving brachytherapy w/seed implantation?

Our Urologist does this piece of the procedure, there are also several codes used my the radiation medicine physician working along with the Urologist.

55875     Transperineal placement of needles or catheters into prostate for interstitial radioelement application, with or without cystoscopy          (For ultrasonic guidance for interstitial radioelement application, use 76965)

Hope this helps.
