Fecal biotherapy through J Tube

Dawna Posted Mon 11th of February, 2013 15:43:59 PM

What CPT code would you use for the following:

"65 cc of mildly diluted fecal biotherapy was instilled through the J tube without any immedicate problems"

Thanks!

44705 will only cover the preparation of the specimen to be used for fecal bacteriotherapy. There is no specific code for instillation of the specimen through the J-tube. This part of the procedure will have to be reported using 44799.
