I was wondering if anyone knows if a Screening C-Scope turns into a polpectomy , when billing DX wise primary DX- from path report OR do you use V76.51 as the primary DX

List dx's 1) V76.51, 2) 211.3 but link to CPT dx 2 only. (If your PM system allows this...otherwise, list 2,1). Medicare does not like this however, they prefer only dx 2 be linked to the procedure... But you should always indicate that the original reason for the scope was screening...the fact that a bx or polypectomy occured must be linked to the CPT first. Hope that helps. It's never easy...:rolleyes:
