When coding Outpatient Colonoscopies and EGD's are we to also code the MAC separately (99152, 99153; in this instance)? The sedation is inclusive to the procedure, correct? The CPT description for the procedure(s) doesn't say to code the sedation separately and to my knowledge the sedation has always been included in the procedure code. No one wants a Colonoscopy while they're wide awake! I am getting/seeing conflicting information from my fellow co-workers/coders and am on the hunt for clarification. When I coded these procedures in the past (for years and years....and years) we didn't code the Mod. Sed. out. This is the first facility that I have coded for where I've seen coders code the Mod. Sed. CPT's on the same encounter as the procedure itself. Just want to refresh my brain and ensure that I am coding the procedures correctly. Plus, I can't find anything, anywhere, that instructs me to code the MAC codes along with the procedure codes....HeLp! TIA!
