Hyperplastic Sigmoid Polyp

Apurva Posted Tue 05th of November, 2019 02:32:47 AM
What should be the ICD-1O code for Hyperplastic Sigmoid Polyp. As per ICD manual we do not a direct ICD we only have D12.5 for Sigmoid Polyp. Need clarification whether we need to bill K63.5 or D12.5.

Hi Apurva,

 

Thanks for your question.

 
To find the answer, let us search the code via index, which is as follows:
 
Polyp => Colon => hyperplastic, (any site) K63.5
 
We get code K63.5 for hyperplastic polyp via index. This code is applicable for hyperplastic polyp at any site. Hence the exact code is K63.5.
 
Please feel free to write if you have any question.
 
Thanks
