45381 COLONSCOPY W/INJ

Amber Posted Mon 20th of April, 2015 14:45:36 PM

When billing for this procedure can I bill for 45385 colon w/snare also on the same polyp?

Thanks for your question. There are no CCI edits when billing 45385, Colonoscopy, flexible; with removal of tumor(s), polyp(s), or other lesion(s) by snare technique and 45381; Colonoscopy, flexible; with directed submucosal injection(s), any substance. You are able to bill both for the same polyp.
