I know this is the age old question, yet the more research my staff does the more confused it becomes... Since I am in Administration I am looking to our coding community for assistance

1. What is the correct diagnosis order for a Pt who had a polypectomy 5 yrs ago and returning for another colonoscopy?
2. polypectomy 10 yrs ago?

Many thanks!
Donna

Polypectomy hx

I would use Z86.010 for both but curious to see what others are using tbh.
