    pulmonology/bronchoscopy coding

    documentation guidelines? Does anyone know if there are specific guidelines as to documentation for a BAL? Can the provider just state "BAL done in RUL" or do they need to state the amount of saline instilled and the return? Thanks.

    Help! New to pulmonary coding. In search of written documentation that when performing a lavage (BAL) that documentation needs to state instillation and return. Does anyone have guidelines or documentation, preferably from CMS stating the requirements? Thank you!
