    A new gastroenterologist in our practice is being proctored by another physician. Do we bill under the new physician? Seems like a stupid question. I just want to be sure. Thank you.

    Contracting and credentialing/Places of service

    How do I add a new place of service to our insurances? Does this place of service have to be a part of our contract? Do I just add it to CAQH? I've never done this so I don't know what to do? Thank you.

    NCCI Edits

    Hi, I hope someone can help with this question. I am trying to bill 45380 with 45381. The NCCI edits do not have the codes in the column 2. If you look for 45380 in column 1 or 45381 in column 1. Does that mean I can bill them together without a modifier? What does it mean? Thank you for the help.

    Food Impaction Dx

    My doc removed food impaction in the ER. The consult did not state there was any difficulty breathing, only difficulty swallowing. I don't really want to use T18.120A because it states "causing compression of trachea". What dx code would you use? Thanks.

    hot vs cold biopsy forceps

    My two docs disagree on a coding issue. Can you gurus help? Polypectomy done with a cold biopsy forcep. 45384 or 45380 ? Their logic...One says 45384 can be done hot or cold regardless of what the CPT book states because it is a "removal of a polyp by biopsy forceps". One says no. The CPT...
