    Default Is this coded correctly?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Patient had hysteroscopy with removal of IUD and endometrial ablation. Then proceeded to have laporoscopic fulguration of oviducts.

    Doctor coded:


    58562 denied as inclusive.

    Any thoughts?

    I would have coded it 58563, 58670 and 58301 the iud removal has a specific code int the cpt book

    CPT Assistant, 2007 indicates the removal of an embedded IUD via hysteroscope, forceps & curette may be reported with 58562.

    Not sure about the inclusive part...payer specific
