Laparoscopic Essure Removal

Senia Posted Tue 09th of August, 2016 08:32:12 AM
How would we code for laparoscopic Essure removal done at the time of a bilateral salpingectomy.

If surgeon is performing laparoscopic bilateral salpingectomy with laparoscopic essure removal then laparoscopic essure removal  will not be coded separately, and use laparoscopic salpingectomy code with a 22 modifier for the extra work of removing the essure coil. 

CPT code  laparoscopic bilateral salpingectomy -58661
