    Question 2nd D&C for products of conception
    Medical Coding Books
    Pt had D&C billed 59820 and dx 632. She returned to the office 3 weeks later at which time an ultrasound showed what appears to be retained products of conception. Pt is scheduled for another D&C. Would it be appropriate to use the same coding as done with the first D&C?

    yes, but you might need to use the modifier 76 or 78 on the second one.
