Patient had hysteroscopy with removal of IUD and endometrial ablation. Then proceeded to have laporoscopic fulguration of oviducts.

Doctor coded:

58563
58562
58670/51

58562 denied as inclusive.

Any thoughts?

CPT Assistant, 2007 indicates the removal of an embedded IUD via hysteroscope, forceps & curette may be reported with 58562.

Not sure about the inclusive part...payer specific
