How would you bill for anesthesia for a screening colonoscopy with EGD? 00813 is the new combined code, however, it does not specify the colonoscopy is screening. 00812 is for screening, but does not include the EGD. So, how would I bill this for my anesthesiologist?

There is no other anesthesia CPT to define colonoscopy with EGD, so the appropriate code would be only 00813. In order to indicate screening colonoscopy, you can use ICD-10 Z12.11 as primary dx.
HOPE THIS HELPS!
