Multiple EGD codes help please

SuperCoder Posted Fri 09th of December, 2016 10:57:48 AM
Doctor gave me these codes 43270, 43255, 43239, 43236. Can these be coded together and if so what order and what modifiers. Thanks

Yes these CPT codes can be billed together, with the use of Modifier-59.

  • Code 43255 is a column 2 code for 43270 , but a modifier is allowed in order to differentiate between the services provided.
  • Code 43255 is a column 2 code for 43239 , but a modifier is allowed in order to differentiate between the services provided.
  • Code 43236 is a column 2 code for 43270 , but a modifier is allowed in order to differentiate between the services provided.
  • Code 43236 is a column 2 code for 43255 , but a modifier is allowed in order to differentiate between the services provided.
  • Code 43236 is a column 2 code for 43239 , but a modifier is allowed in order to differentiate between the services provided.

Bill CPT codes 43255 and 43236 with Modifier 59.
