Excision of vaginal cuff granuloma

    New Call-to-action
    Hello my coding friends,

    Does anyone know of a code for this? Everything I find leads to the unlisted 58999 and I have no idea how I would be able to get this precerted.

    Any feedback is appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Denise

    I would agree this is unlisted 58999 (unfortunately). I would compare it to 57000 or 57135. We need to use unlisted codes on a fairly regular basis due to the unusual and/or complex nature of what we do. Most insurance companies will have a policy in place regarding pre-cert. The harder part is getting fair reimbursement afterwards. Good luck.

    Unlisted is correct. I believe we use 57135 as a comparable.
