    58670 and 58661 Cyst and sterilization

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Patient had a lap cyst excision and another drainage and biopsy right ovary. then the tubes were cauterized lap. then instruments were taken out and incisions were closed

    then speculum went in and a novasure ablation done.

    I am thinking the 58662 is included with the 58670 and then I would code the 58563 for the novasure.

    this is commercial payer and an asc.


    or can I bill all three codes.

    I need some direction
