Removing & inserting new feedin tube

Yen Posted Fri 08th of June, 2012 23:34:28 PM

Our doctor removed a malfunctioning G-tube and inserted a new one in one visit at the office. Can I bill using 99212 + 43760?

SuperCoder Answered Mon 11th of June, 2012 07:11:06 AM

Yes, 43760 is the correct CPT code for the G-tube change.
******
However you should not report 99212 along with 43760 if there is no separate medical necessity.
*******
In case of separate medical necessity use 43760 & 99212-25
