All practices are different but at the ASC I worked for these are the codes we billed the majority of the time for the 2 colorectal surgeons...My manager just asked me to find a list of CPT codes for the procedures that a colorectal surgeon most commonly bills for, such as resections and hemorrhoidectomies. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
You would not code the "scout", or code out the fact that you are in there looking unless that is all that you are doing. That is a component of the other procedures.I have a coder that wants to code 46060, 46030 and 45990 together. 46060and 46030 pays but 45990 denies. Is there a modifier that will allow this code to be used with the other two?
