    Default Coding ureterolysis with supracervical hyst

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is uterolysis bundled with 58180? Uterolysis was performed due to obstruction (593.4) and severe hydronephrosis. I have read that it is usually bundled with hysterectomies. I have also read 50715 can only be used if there is a documented diagnosis of retroperitoneal fibrosis (593.4). Would documentation of the obstruction justify this?Any help would be appreciated.

    Default 58150 w/ 50715

    Per SGO's Frequently asked questions - Code 50715 is a code used to manage ureteral obstruction secondary to retroperitoneal fibrosis. If this indication is absent then you woul not report the 50715. Use a -22 modifier on your 58150 instead.
