    Default Removal of Clips during Hysterectomy

    AAPC: Back to School
    My doctor writes " pt has large Filshie clips present, some adhered to the uterus and onto the sidewall. These were removed without difficulty.

    Question: during a Transvaginal Hysterectomy is this an inherant part of the procedure or is this a billable procedure( the removable of clips). If billable what is the code?

    If this is the only documentation, it doesn't appear to have caused any additional time etc......I would just include it.
