Code 7619: the removal of one or both ovaries is rated 100% for the first 3 months after surgery. After that period, the complete removal of both ovaries is rated 30%. A 30% rating is also given if a single service-connected ovary is removed and the other ovary has also been removed or doesn’t function at all, even if the problems with the second ovary are not related to service. Anything less than the complete removal or loss of use of both ovaries is rated 0%.
Code 7621: If any of the pelvic organs (the uterus, bladder, or rectum) are prolapsed (out of place) because of a disease, injury, or complications of pregnancy, it is rated under this code. This includes tears and bulges into the uterus or vagina, cystocele (the bladder bulges into the vagina), urethrocele (the urethra bulges into the vagina), rectocele (the rectum bulges into the vagina), enterocele (the small intestines and peritoneum bulge into the vagina), a perineal deficiency (the perineal muscles bulge into the vagina), or any combination. The ratings are based on how far the prolapsed organ protrudes into the vagina.
The severity of the prolapse is determined during examination by the Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) classification system as severe, moderate, or mild.
A 50% rating is given for a severe POP score where the prolapsed organ protrudes to within 2 cm of the vaginal opening.
A 30% rating is given for a moderate POP score where the prolapsed organ protrudes more than 1 cm past the hymen, but is more than 2 cm from the vaginal opening.
A 10% rating is given for a mild POP score where the prolapsed organ is within 1 cm below the hymen to 1 cm past the hymen.
