If a patient comes in for a colonoscopy and the reasons for the procedure are History of colon polyp (V12.72), Abdominal pain-gen (789.07), and change in bowel habits (787.99) and it ends up being a normal colonoscopy with no problems what order would these DX's be billed in? The patient has a commercial insurance, NOT Medicare.

change of dx

What is your employer wants the collectors to change the dx from what the pathologist finds to screening, which is why the patient had the colonoscopy in the first place? Shouldn't the claims we filed with the findings of the pathologist not screening or routine? Wouldn't this be fraud?
