    ​What codes do you use to bill an ultrasound guided intra-gestational sac injection of methotrexate for a cesarean scar ectopic pregnancy? The procedure was done in the OR with a spinal but patient went home same day.

    Thank you!

    HI Stacy:
    short answer, either
    a)  59897 - unlisted fetal invasive procedure, including ultrasound guidance (Claim should be dropped to paper with supporting documentation). The supplies used (KCL/MTX, needles, drapes, gloves, cleaning solution etc) are included in all the procedure codes and can NOT be billed separately or in addition.
    b) MFM is providing the intra-amniotic injection, hospital admission and delivery/termination use 59850-59852.
    search the tips or Q&A we have answered this more extensively (search KCL I think)
    thanks
