58150 & 58720

    Medical Coding Books
    can I bill these together or is one a part of the other? can I include any modifiers?

  2. #2
    58150 already includes the salpino-oophorectomy and they are bundled together with an indicator of "0", which means they can not be billed together under any circumstances.

    58150, Total abdominal hysterectomy (corpus and cervix), with or without removal of tube(s), with or without removal of ovary(s);

    58720, Salpingo-oophorectomy, complete or partial, unilateral or bilateral (separate procedure)


  3. Cool 58150 & 58720

    Where do you find the indicator numbers such as "0" and such....I think I've spent countless hours on the CMS website looking for something. Please help!

    I wrote an article called "General Surgery Coding Concepts" and in it is a section on the Correct Coding Initiative. I explain where to download the CCI edits and how to use them.

    Check it out here:

    I think that will answer all your questions. If not, let me know!

  6. Question 58140 & 58720
    What are the guidelines for billing 58140 - Myomectomy, excision of fibroid tumor(s) of uterus, with 58720 - Salpingo-oophorectomy, (separate procedure)?

    Is 58140 considered an intregal component of the salpingo procedure which shouldn't be reported separately? TIA for any advice!
