Hello, have not had much experience billing out a Lap Hysterectomy and a bilateral Salpingo-oophorectomy.

I used 58552 and 58661, according to the NCCI edits says that cannot bill these together.
Would someone be able to help me with this ?
Thanks.
Carol

Lap Hysterectomy

The code 58552 includes removal of the tubes and ovaries (bilateral Salpingo-oophorectomy) So it can't be billed seperately. This code is for a lap surgery with a vaginal hysterectomy. If it is a full laparoscopic hyterectomy, which is a little different, you may want to look at 58571 or 58573. Hope this helps!
