    Laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy 58555, Bilateral Salpingo-oophorectomy 58661, Ant/Post-57260, Vaginectomy 57106 - single -incision sling 57288 and Cysto- 52000, enterocele repair 57270 Would the salpingo bundle with the hysterectomy. When I put the enterocele 57270 into supercoder it doesn't bundle but bcbs is stating that it's incidental. Please advise is this coded correctly. I was told that there is a code that have a higher RVU for the 58555 combine with the 58661/58700. Please advise.

    Hi,

    Correct code for Laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy is 58550-58554. However, 58555 is Hysteroscopy diagnostic and the procedure performed is surgical.

    Also, Cpt code 57270 doesn’t have any conflict with Cpt code range 58550-58554. In addition, Cpt code 58555 is not a combination code of 58661/58700.
