I go with your doctor's code selection because1) the procedure is the same step by step and the intention or the reason is the same dilation with lamaneria tent. 2) As long as we do not have another specific code for non obstetrical, we can share this code which do not exclusively specify for obstetric alone.
3) code selection are often made from other system's codes too, as the procedure necessitates and for want of code from the same section.
Don't we use the surgical (digestive system) codes /urology codes for gynocological codes too, as the procedure warrants the description in other systems?
As a matter of fact, many of the abortion and ectopic pregancy topics are included in the Gynecological text books and also in OB text books.
But I think we have to go for supply code from HCPCS too.
