If a cervical dilation was also performed when performing an endometrial biopsy, but no curettage, is it appropriate to report CPT 58120-52?

I would have to say no, as the curettage represents the majority of the work for 58120. I assume the patient had a stenotic cervix but how was the dilation accomplished. 59200 may be a possibility if done prior to the EBx, but of course 57800 is bundled with 58100 and no modifier can be used to bypass the edit. If the work in dilating was significant, you might consider a modifier -22 to 58100, but sometimes a basic procedure is easy and sometimes hard and you may not always get paid for all the work.
