Thread: Help with coding revision of c-section scar

    Default Help with coding revision of c-section scar

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am having trouble finding the correct cpt/dx codes to use for removal of masses from c-section scar (endometrial masses or adenoma masses x3 in c-section scar. Does anyone have any ideas? We are trying to pre-cert this with our local medical assistance carrier - DMAP (Oregon).

    Thanks for any input

    edit: I just spoke with the physician and she is doing a 58662 as the main procedure. The removal of the masses from inside the incision is due to pain, if that helps any.

    We're thinking cpt: 13101 with dx: 709.2. Anyone agree or disagree with this??
    THANKS! Julie
