episiotomy code?

Lynn Posted Thu 03rd of December, 2015 08:01:42 AM

patient has endometrial cancer and we are billing 58571 and 38572. Can we bill for the episiotomy code in addition to the codes above? The patient had a narrow introitus or is there something different we should use?

Thanks,

As per CCI edits, there is no bundling showing between CPT 59300 with 58571 and 38572, so you can use CPT code for episiotomy with both CPT codes.

You can also try CPT 56800 (Plastic repair of introitus) for narrow inteoitus and this code also is not showing any bundling with 58571 and 35872.
