CPT has no less than 37 codes to report a hysterectomy. Making sure you pick the right code can mean substantial reimbursement differences for your practice.
Key: You must identify the surgical approach, know the weight of the uterus and adnexal structures, and recognize other concomitant procedures. Simply reading the operative summary is not enough.
