What is the correct code for an exploratory laparoscopy converted to an open cholecystectomy? The only code I can think of is 47480 but I don't think that is correct. Please advise.

You would just bill for the open cholecystectomy 47600. List V64.41 (Laparoscopic surgical procedure converted to open procedure) as a secondary diagnosis.
