    Question Removal of Migrating IUD from Omentum Laparscopically

    AAPC: Back to School
    OB provider removed a migrating IUD laparscopically from the omentum. Provider did state there were adhesions but not extensive. I am looking for a CPT code for this service. This was not an exploratory because the provider knew the IUD was there. The intent of the laparscope was to remove the IUD. Any ideas?

    Default Unlisted

    I'm thinking 49329 - Unlisted Laparascopy procedure, abdomen, pertoneum and omentum.

    I'd base my pricing on 49402.

    Anyone else?

    I would also use the unlisted laparoscopic abdominal code 49659, but compare it to 49326. I do not believe 49402 is laparoscopic so the other seems to be the closest code.
