Hello. I am new to coding GI, and have run into a report where my Dr placed 5 bands for an esophageal varices. I am unclear as to whether or not I can report this multiple times, or if once covers all the bands placed in the operative session. I have looked throughout my CPT book, and tried to bring up any information on this online, to no avail. Thanks in advance for any information on this!
