Physician performed an ERCP on a patient, he dictates the following: "The previously placed plastic biliart stent was removed using a snare. The pancreatic duct was dilated using a 4 x 20 mm Hurricane balloon with good effect."
Can we bill 43277 and 43275 for both the dilation and the removal?

There is no CCI conflict with these 2 codes. So, you can report them.
