LAVH/BSO converted to open TAH...


Gresham, OR
Best answers
One of my doctors is trying to bill a LAVH/BSO (58522) with modifier 53 and an open TAH/BSO (58150) together. She convert the lap to an open procedure. I've been out of GYN coding for a while, so I'm turning to all of you for help. Can she do this? or is it much like a lap chole when it's converted to an open procedure, use the open code with modifier 22?

Thank you
