A patient scheduled for either screening or diagnostic colonoscopy procedure, multiple polyps are removed, some by cold bx forceps, some by snare. What is the correct way to bill Medicare for the ASC charges? Thank you.

If they are different polyps and/or different sites, you should be able to use 45380 for the biopsy and 45385 for the snare. All appropriate modifiers would of course need to be attached.
