Has anyone had any issues billing these codes together? Are they being denied as inclusive to each other?

The first issue may be that 58544 includes salpingectomy if performed, so I would not bill it separately. The second issue for the denial may be that 58544 is a laparoscopic approach code, and 58700 is an open approach code.
