    Default A diagnostic Hysteroscopy, Diagnostic D&C and Intrauterine polypectomy

    AAPC: Back to School

    My OB/GYN did a diagnostic hysteroscopy, diagnositc D&C of the uterus and a intrauterine polypectomy on a patient on one date of service. When they did the hysteroscopy they found that she had polpys. Then he did a polpyectomy and the d&c was the last thing he did. I know that I can't charge for the hysteroscopy, but can I still charge for the d&c?

    Thank you in advance,

    i agree with magnolia
    cannot bill for a diagnotic when an actual procedure is performed. the procedure supercedes the diagnostic.
