    Default C-section & lysis of adhesions

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi Friends
    please suggest.

    Our OB/GYN performed C-section and also lysed pelvic adhesions which took extra time, is it appropriate to code lysis of adhesions separately or do i need to append 22 modifier to CPT 59510.

    Hi I use the 59515 for the c-section and the 58740 with a modifier -59 seems to work for us!
