I am new to gastro coding and see the term hyperplastic quite frequently on the pathology reports for rectal polyps. I am wondering if these would be coded as 211.4 or 569.0?

We use 569.0. The ICD-9 index under polyp, rectal states adenomatous are 211.4. Non-adenomatous rectal polyps are 569.0. Everything I find indicates that even though hyperplastic polyps are benign, they are not adenomatous.
