Intersphinteric and Transsphinteric fistula LIFT treatment

Tanesha Posted Mon 11th of March, 2019 22:11:24 PM
Would you code both 46275 and 46280 for the LIFT treatment or just 46280 as this is for multiple anal fistulas? Does this code 46280 necessarily include the intersphincteric as apart of the multiple or just the types listed under 46280?

Hi Tanesha,

 
Thanks for your question.
 
Codes 46275 and 46280 cannot be reported together on the same date of service. Code 46280 includes both internal and external. So only code 46280 should be reported.
 

Please feel free to write if you have any question.

 

Thanks
