Colonoscopy G Codes

The G Codes G0105 And G0121 Are For Screening Purposes And I Bill These Codes As Appropriate - If I Bill These Proc Codes Then I Will Use The Diag Code V76.51
If Its Not For Screening Purposes Then I Bill Proc Codes 453__ As Appropriate And The Diagnosis For The Problem.
In Answer To Your Question - These Codes Can Be Billed To Other Carriers Not Just Medicare.

I've noticed some carriers do not like the G codes for some odd reason, but they are what they are.

G code is for a screening colonoscopy, thats what you need to code.

Carriers prefer the 453XX codes & normally we use the G codes for mainly MC patients. And of course we have patients who come in for routine/screening colonoscopy & it will to lead to biopsy &/or other procedures during that visit.
