No CPT code 45388 is for Colonoscopy, flexible; with ablation of tumor(s), polyp(s), or other lesion(s) (includes pre- and post-dilation and guide wire passage, when performed). Where as CPT 45380 is for Colonoscopy, flexible; with biopsy, single or multiple. These codes can be bill together with -59 modifier, if biopsy and ablation were performed on 2 different tumor, polyp or other lesion (s).
