A Uterus with or without tubes and ovaries is generally an
88307 however if there is a neoplasm then we have been doing
88309 because it is "neoplastic"
One of our physicians is saying that a Brenner tumor that was found in one of the ovaries does not institute us using a
88309 even though it is coded as a neoplasm (if benign)
220. Would it not be classified as "neoplastic"?
Now if it is a
218.9 leiomyoma, we have been leaving it at a `88307'
Have we been doing this correctly?

This would be 88307 for the uterus (non-neoplastic/prolapse), plus 88307 for ovary (neoplastic), which is no longer incidental because it shows distinct pathology.
You are correct that neoplastic uterus earns 88309, unless it’s a leiomyoma, which remains 88307.
