Can anyone tell me if performing an emema tubing procedure for constipation is included in E/M code or is it a separately billable procedure?

Procedure reads: Rectal exam performed. Moderate amount of stool in vault. Enema tubing inserted. Patient ablt to tolerate 400 cc's of fluid.Held for one minute.

Thanks for any help.

Enema administration for constipation in the ED setting is included in the E/M.
