Some of the local insurance companies and the local medicare carrier consider the Gastroenterology CPT codes "all inclusive" with regards to materials used (such as Electrocautery Pads, EndoClips and Disposable Bx forceps) when the endoscopy is performed in the physician's office. Medicare cease to pay for the HCPCS code A4550 many years ago and won't accept the 99070 for the disposable supplies. Many of our Gastroenterology clients refuse to use reusable supplies. Is there a HCPCS code that would cover these supplies??

No such code that can be separately billable
