Our physician performed a colonoscopy with biopsy (45380) with resulting colon polyp (211.4)-however, when I researched the coverage under "Code Search" on this site, it states that only 211.3 (rectal polyp)covers this. I also searched on the CMS website and they state that 211.4 is covered. Can anyone help with this? Thank you!

ICD crosswalk is the broad categorization of the Dx covered for a particular specific CPT. If your document supports the medical necessity of this Diagnosis, go ahead and code 211.4
