This colonoscopy is done for iron deficiency anemia. The provider placed the hemostatic clip to prevent bleeding post-intervention. There was no bleeding at the end of the procedure. My question is if the patient is not already bleeding (colonoscopy or EGD) but the clip was placed to prevent bleeding (not to stop it) can 45382 be charged during colonoscopy and 43255 for EGD. The clip is not being placed as a marker. The provider is doing this after the removal of a polyp so the site does not bleed.
