Colon w/ tissue destruction


Best answers
Polyp was removed in piecemeal fashion with a cold biopsy forceps because the snare would not grasp the lesion. Coagulation for tissue destruction of residual polyp tissue using snare was successful. The area was successfully injected with India Ink for tattooing.

Can I bill ablation of polyp (45383) AND 45380? (I know I can bill the 45381)

Any advice is appreciated!
