  1. We performed a laparoscopic gastrojejunostomy and could not find an appropriate code. Closest we could find was for an open approach 43820 but nothing for lap. Would we bill 43999? Your help is appreciated.

  2. It is better to go unlisted code with additional documentation if you are not getting the proper code and as you said, there is no specific code for laparoscopic gastrojejunostomy, unlisted code I would prefer(43659: Unlisted laparoscopic procedure, stomach)rather than 43999.

  3. Thank you!
