Dr. is planning on doing a few procedures on a pt for retained part of her IUD.
Hysteroscopic removal of IUD (nurse said 58555 but I am liking 58562)
Any suggestions?

Well, in CPT 58555- Hysteroscopy, diagnostic- the provider just examine the uterine cavity using a hysteroscope, bot not removing the IUD. Whereas, in CPT 58562 the provider removes a foreign body that has become lodged in the lining of the uterus, the most common impacted foreign body is an intrauterine device (IUD). So, CPT 58562 is appropriate code to bill in your case. Hope it helps!
