G0105 is used when we code for high risk screening colonscopy and in such case V76.51 should be primary code.

We only use V76.51 when billing 45378 or G0121? we have never billed V76.51 with v12.72 for G0105

UPDATE FROM PALMETTO GBA
Status:
Update 9/30/2014 - The processing system will be updated for HCPCS codes G0105 and G0120 to be allowed when ICD-9 codes V12.72, V160 & V18.51 are billed. This update will be retroactive to dates of service July 1, 2014.

Once the system has been updated a mass adjustment will be completed. There is currently no estimated date when this update will be completed
