my surgeon did cpt 44661-Closure of enterovesical fistula; with intestine and/or bladder resection --only laparoscopically. I did bill an unlisted lap code but was denied stating there is specific procedure code for this service.

Can 44661 be used for open and lap??

Thanks for any help

Hi,
I would appeal this again with writting a letter, I think the person who viewed your claim didn't understand, there is NOT such a code for this as of yet. I have to appeal so many unlisted codes that it drives me carzy but I do end up most of the time getting paid. Good Luck
