Hysterectomy following C-section, done by a diff. Dr., at same DOS

  1. Default Hysterectomy following C-section, done by a diff. Dr., at same DOS
    New Call-to-action
    Our Dr. is called in as a specialist for complex cases, to perform a hysterectomy right after a C-section.

    What code should we be billing the Hysterectomy? C-section was done by another Dr. (not in our practice). Our Dr. simply is doing the hysterectomy, bladder sling, etc. 58150 ? But the patient was cut open already....maybe with a Mod 52 (reduced services)? Or Mod 62 (two surgeons)?

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    52 modifier if your provider didn't perform any portion of the cesarean (since the incision had already been made)

    AHG, CPC, CPMA
