Diagnostic laparoscopy, LOA (additional 20 minutes of OR time), LSO, pelvic fluid collection, pelvic irrigation, hysteroscopy D&C.
I am billing 58558 for the procedure. What do I do with the 20min additional documented? Also I do not code for the diagnostic lap?
please let me know thanks!

You can append modifier 22 with the CPT code for increase procedural service. Make sure to provide the complete documentation to support the extra work for billing the procedure.
