Diagnostic Laparoscopy - (Items 30390 and 30627)

If a diagnostic laparoscopy procedure is performed at a different time on the same day to another laparoscopic service, the procedures are considered to be un-associated services.  The claim for benefits should be annotated to indicate that the two services were performed on separate occasions, otherwise the claims will be considered to be a single service.
