Thread: Hysteroscopy coding...

    Question Hysteroscopy coding...

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have an op report which clearly indicates Hysteroscope was removed and then D&C done as seperate proedure...Would I still bill 58558 as single procedure or 58120 as primary w/ 58555-51? I'm afraid if I bill the later the carrier will either change the code or pay either or at an insuffficient allowable...

    According to the ACOG Coding manual, if DX HS is also performed with 58120, then use 58558 only for billing. I love this manual for these kind of questions.
