Need help with clarification:

We are charging 82272 w/V76.41 (done by doctor). I believe it should be 82270 w/76.41.

Confusion on Medicare patients - thought I read some where that the G0394 should billed using 82270.

What are your thoughts?

G0394 doesn't state "screening"... I take the wording to mean that the patient has a colorectal neoplasm. Unless of course it is a typo... We use 82270/V76.41. To my knowledge we are not having problems with Medicare. 82272 states for "other than colorectal neoplasm screening", so it would be incorrect with V76.41.
