    Default excision of right paratubal cyst
    Medical Coding Books
    my doc did an excision of a right paratubal cyst following a laparoscopic vaginal hysterectomy. She had completed the hysterectomy, then moved on to the tube and removed the cyst, not removing any of the tube. Same incision. Can I bill separately for this, and if so, what the right cpt code? thanks!

    Yes, you can bill the ovarian cystectomy separately. The correct code to use would be the 58662-51. I briefly looked through the CCI edits and did not see a bundling issue.

    A good resource for you to have is the ACOG Coding Manual. You can get it from ACOG or through the AMA. It is a great resource to have and it will answer most of your questions regarding issues like this one.
