UCR 141: Optilume coding update; robotic prostatectomy questions: can bill with urethral suspension? If performing with 38571 (BPLND) should you bill the S2900?

April 14, 2023

Mark, Ray, and Scott revisit coding for Optilume and provide an update, and also discuss two questions about robotic prostatectomy coding.


  1. Can you share your thoughts on billing 51990 & 55866?  I saw your post in 2018 however wanted to see if you have the same stance in regards to not billing 51990 when performed without incontinence. 
  2. When coding a robotic radical prostatectomy with BPLND- 55866 states it includes use of robot so S2900 should not be billed but since 38571 is done as well does that support reporting the S2900?
