Laserscope, San Jose, CA, has announced that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has published a technical revision to the 2006 Medicare physician few schedule, and under the revision, the CPT code 52648 was assigned non-facility relative value units for performing the company's photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP) procedure for BPH treatment in an appropriately equipped office setting. The reimbursement rate for the office-based procedure code was set at a national average of approximately $3,100 effective Jan. 1, the company said.
