Coding descriptions

Stephanie Posted Tue 07th of September, 2010 09:34:24 AM

Could anyone help me. I am looking for something that describes the procedures with the corresponding CPT codes used for GI surgery. I know that Cardiologists sometimes use a St. Anthony's coding book which describes procedures along with what codes can and cannot be used. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Michele

we use the "coding & billing for General Surgery/Gastroenterology" by Contexo. It has each code with a plain english description, commonly used icd-9 codes, rvus, modifiers, & CCI edits. Hope this helps.

I have seen this Contexo-M material but it was not at all up to mark. Rather you can try this from the 3M publications it is rather a better option.
