Thread: hysteroscopy w/d&c & endocervical curettage

  1. #1

    Default hysteroscopy w/d&c & endocervical curettage

    Can cpt codes 58558 [hysteroscopy with sampling (biopsy) of endometrium and/or polypectomy, with or without D&C], and cpt 57505 [endocervical curettage (not done as part of dilation and curretage)] be coded together?

    Is there any official information out there that states these two codes cannot be coded together?

    Default

    Although CCI edits don't specifically eliminate billing a 57505 with the 58558, the 57505 is considered a part of a D&C, which 58558 can include. You'll find that most carriers will reject the ECC as an inlcuded portion of the 58558.

    Default 58558 anf 57505

    In my Office we are finding that if the 57505 is done prior to dilation of the cervix, with proper documentation, we are having our claims paid
