Dermoid cyst on ovary removal during c-section

Loni Posted Mon 07th of October, 2019 16:03:28 PM
What would the correct cpt code and/or modifier be to report removal of dermoid cyst of the ovary along with a c-section? (Two procedures, one session); can they be reported separately (59510 with 58925), or 59510 with a modifier?

Hi Loni,

 
Thanks for your question.
 
Since there is no CCI edit between these two codes, you may report both procedures done on the same date of service without any modifier.
 
Please feel free to write if you have any question.
 
Thanks.
