    No, that's were I'm having problems. If it had been I would bill 58150 and 58662-51. I'm thinking it's included with the TAH but would like other responses. Thank you in advance.

    TAH 58150 does include the fulguration of endometriosis. If the procedure was complicated and took much more time due to the fulguration, then you can append modifier 22 and submit it that way. Just remember that the physician must document that the procedure was much more complicated and be very descriptive as to explain the complications and extra amount of time it may have taken. You will want to send the report with the claim.

    Hope that helps
