My patient went in for diagnostic hysteroscopy and D&C for Post menopausal bleeding. He could not complete the hysteroscopy because of stenosis but completed the D&C. What code would I use 58558 -52 or do I separate 58555 with -52 and 58120? Thanks!

Did he get the hysteroscope in even a little bit? If so, I would use a modifier -52. It sort of depends on how much work it was in getting it in. If it did not enter the uterus at all then you cannot bill 58555 at all and only 58120 would apply. Much simpler to go with the -52 option.
