    Default Silly Question Laparoscopy/ovarian cyst

    AAPC: Back to School

    I was just wondering if you can bill a Laproscopic ovarian cystectomy 58662 with a Laproscopic ovarian cyst drainage 49322? I did't see any edits staing that these were bundled procedures but I guess it just dosen't seem correct to code the drainage and removal of the cyst together.

    Any opinions would be greatly appreciated,

    I get 49322 only when I code cystectomy with aspiration. (Using 3M)

    If it was the same cyst I would just code the 58662.
