Lap with tubal ligation and endo ablation

Loni Posted Wed 22nd of May, 2019 16:52:10 PM
Please advise the correct CPT codes for Diagnostic Laparoscopy with Tubal Ligation and Endometrial Ablation. Also, can they be billed together as 3 separate procedures? Thank you!

Hi Loni,

 

Thanks for your question.

 

As per the documentation provided, please report the following codes.

 

58671 -Laparoscopy, surgical; with occlusion of oviducts by device (eg, band, clip, or Falope ring)

58353 -Endometrial ablation, thermal, without hysteroscopic guidance

 

Surgical laparoscopy includes diagnostic laparoscopy which is not separately reportable. If a diagnostic laparoscopy leads to a surgical laparoscopy at the same patient encounter, only the surgical laparoscopy may be reported. So, diagnostic Laparoscopy should not be reported in this case. Moreover, please correlate with the medical record.

 

Please feel free to write if you have any question.

 

Thanks
