Can anyone tell me what the procedure code is for a colon with endoscopic mucosal resection is for medicare. I billed 45390 and they denied the claim saying it is invalid for date of service which is 09/2015.
Thank-you

code was new as of 1/1/15 so its still valid. Are you sure it wasn't the diagnosis they were referring to? You used an icd-9 code correct? It could always be a error on the payer side so you might want to call and have them take a look.

Thank-you I had looked through G codes and couldn't find anything but did not want to use unlisted without asking for help first. Again thank you both for your time.
