Colon with worm removal?

Selina Posted Fri 24th of August, 2018 09:54:56 AM
Good Morning, What CPT code should be used for a colonoscopy with worm removal? It was sent out for identification. Is 45379 appropriate?

Hi Selina,

The appropriate code for colonoscopy with worm removal is 45379 (Colonoscopy, flexible; with removal of foreign body).

Good day.

Further query is welcome.
