AbbeyMoor Medical Receives Category I CPT(R) Code for The Spanner(TM) Prostatic Stent Procedure
Date:10/14/2009

about the stent in Urology Times (July 2009): "How to manage BOO (bladder outlet obstruction) with temporary prostatic stenting."

The relative value units (RVUs) used to establish the payment amounts for The Spanner procedure will be published by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in the Federal Register later this fall. CPT code 53855 will replace Category III CPT code 0084T, effective January 1, 2010.

About CPT Coding

In addition to facilitating reimbursement in government programs such as Medicare and Medicaid, CPT codes are used by other insurance companies and government payers to describe health care services and procedures. In the development of new and revised Category I CPT codes the AMA requires:

  • That the service/procedure receive approval/clearance from the FDA
  • That the service/procedure is performed across the country in multiple locations
  • That many physicians perform the service/procedure
  • That the clinical efficacy for the service/procedure has been well established and documented.

More information about CPT codes and the process of establishing CPT codes is available at the AMA's website: www.AMA-Assn.org

About The Spanner

The Spanner is a temporary prostatic stent designed to aid men who are experiencing difficulty in urination following a minimally invasive treatment for their BPH. Device placement can be safely performed in a physician's office and does not require cystoscopy or anesthesia. The Spanner is approved by the FDA for use up to 30 days in patients who have undergone minimally invasive treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia following initial post treatment catheterization.
