For some of the new gastro codes are we no longer able to report together....example: we use 43239 & 43251 together sometimes....now it looks like we need to use just 43254 by itself for this senerio.

43254 -Esophagogastroduodenoscopy, flexible, transoral; with endoscopic mucosal resection
(Do not report 43254 in conjunction with 43236, 43244, 43251)
(Endoscopic mucosal resection includes biopsy of the same lesion, when performed)
