Hello, can I code both a laparoscopic hysterectomy with laparoscopic biopsies of both the omentum and the peritoneum or are the biopsies included and not coded separately? Thank you

Hi,
I would check your NCCI edits for the CPT codes you are going to choose to be sure. I checked 58570 and 49321, the biopsy would need a modifier to indicate it was separate.
