    58550-22 - bump up your fee to account for the additional work and send documentation showing that the adhesions were extensive, or anatomically distorting and required additional work to complete the procedure. It will still be up to the insurance to decide if they agree to pay more for the procedure, but if the documentation is good it usually works.
