Hysteroscopic Assisted Removal Of IUD

  • 1.  Hysteroscopic Assisted Removal Of IUD

    Posted 11 days ago
    Good morning,
    I'm hoping some can help with a coding question in our office. A patient was taken to the surgical suite for a hysteroscopic assisted IUD removal after failed attempt in the office. The issue was that the strings could not be grasped. The IUD, according to the physician, was absolutely not embedded/impacted.
    We are unsure as to what CPT code to use since we would like to avoid the unlisted code (58579).
    Thanks to anyone that can help...
