    Need help with procedure code for insertion of uterine tamponade balloon.
    I can't locate a precise code so I am thinking an unlisted code. Also, for the removal I don't think there should be charge. Thank you for any help!

    you'd be correct in using the unlisted code - 59899 (I'm assuming this was done maternity care and delivery)? And no, no separate removal code either .
    {that's my opinion on the posted matter}

    darn unlisted procedures ! Since this procedure is becoming so common, I wonder if we'll have a code for it soon...
