Screening and Diverticulosis

Stephanie Posted Mon 20th of May, 2013 19:31:57 PM

When a doctor goes in to do a Screening Colonoscopy and finds Diverticulosis 562.10. Can it still be a G0121 due to diverticulosis being an incidental finding? I have read many conflicting answers.

The finding like 562.10 or 455.x, is what we refer to as incidental. You can code and bill those, but as secondary dx, the intention was screening, and it should stay screening with G-code.
