What is the CPT procedure code for tubal ligation?


Answer by  quisqualis (1756)

That code is 58600, if the procedure is done alone, without other abdominal surgery and not right after a vaginal delivery. If the ligation is done after vaginal delivery, and during the same hospitalization, it is coded 58605. If a ligation is done during a caesarian section or other abdomial surgery, the code is + 58611.


Answer by  sailendra (63)

Tubal ligation is an interruption of the continuity of the oviducts by cutting, cautery, or by a plastic or metal device to prevent future conception. There are four occlusion methods for tubal ligation, i. e. partial salpingectomy, clips, silicone rings, and electrocoagulation or cauterization. CPT 58600 is the right procedure code for tubal ligation.

A tubal ligation is assigned the CPT procedure code of 00851. The use of individual codes for each medical/surgical procedure allows for accurate billing through the insurance company by the physician or hospital.
