patient is 11 weeks along with twins and has incarcerated uterus. Physician taking her to the OR for exam under anesthesia to try to manually reduce the uterus into the proper position. If unsuccessful then may try it laparoscopically. What CPT code could I use? Unlisted 59899? If its ends up being done laparoscopically 59898?

I've never encountered this situation, but from what I can see, you would use either of those unlisted codes depending on the approach.

Thank you very much. Physician was able to manually do this procedure. So I will be using 59899.
Yes, that would now be correct. You also might consider comparing the work to 59412 as the work will be very similar as this will give the payer an idea if your charge is fair.
