And what was the denial message? If it is that they will not pay for an unlisted procedure code, you need to check with their policy on this issue and most likely send in the documentation showing what you did. But from this documentation it is clear that 58578 was not the correct code to use. The IUD was not in the uterus so the unlisted code 49329 is correct for this procedure - but in some cases, the payer may only be willing to pay for a diagnostic laparoscopy and 49320 will get it paid. You also then inserted another IUD and that code is 58300. You would not normally use a modifier -76 on 58300 as this modifier is usually only recognized when a procedure is repeated on the same date of service.
