Excision of bile duct stump

What is the best way to code excision of bile duct stump. I had originally used an unlisted CPT® code and medicare has denied it. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance. Frustrated in California

Have you submitted it with the medical records? Typically Medicare will deny all unlisted codes until they review the documentation and decide what they should pay for it. I would suggest an appeal with the medical records
