repair of ovary

Ann Posted Thu 14th of April, 2016 17:41:45 PM
Hi, doctor performs an "exploratory laparotomy with repair of left ovarian cyst." After hemoperitoneum was encountered and blood clot removed "the site of the ovarian cyst rupture was oversewn with several figure of eight sutures.." Do I use 58679, unlisted lap procedure? or is this repair included in 49000? Thanks for the help!

Hi, Please report code 58925 (Ovarian cystectomy, unilateral or bilateral). Code 49000 should not be reported as per CCI edits.
