Thread: hysteroscopy w/ d&c no polypectomy

  1. #1

    Default hysteroscopy w/ d&c no polypectomy

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a physician who did a Hysteroscopy with D&C but no polypectomy was done. I don't know if I should bill out 58555 and 58120 or just 58558? Thanks in advance

    Did your doctor collect a specimen for path examination?
    Any non-obstetrical D & C procedure necessarily involves collecting curettage specimen for path.
    your case did not stop with the diagnostic Hysteroscopy but went for surgical.
    Sending the specimen or taking the specimen by D& C , is another word for biopsy of endometrium (with or without D&C). It doesn't have to involve polypectomy too to assign for 58558.
    So as for my openion, it correctly fits into 58558 because it covers Hysteroscopy.
    Thank you
