procedure vs findings

Hi Shellie,

You should use the most specific diagnosis appropriate for the patient and make sure it is well-documented in the medical record.
Also, you should check on EdgeBlast #120 March 2009, title: CT Colonography Fails NCA test. That would be help.

I hope it can help,

Good luck,;)

I would put the colon polyp on line one and the constipation and blood in stool on subsequent lines as additional dx if needed.

I would bill colon polyp as primary diagnosis (make sure you go by path results), bleeding as second, and constipation as third. The colon polyp is reason for polypectomy.
