Replacement of cecostomy tube without guidance

Elaine Posted Wed 02nd of July, 2014 12:02:22 PM

What code would you use for a cecostomy without guidance?

SuperCoder Answered Thu 03rd of July, 2014 07:28:17 AM

"In CPT, there is a code for change of gastrostomy tube without imaging or endoscopic guidance, however, there is no similar code for removal of cecostomy tube without guidance.

You may use an unlisted code - 44799, 'Unlisted procedure, intestine'.

Thanks !!"
