I do some coding for a GI doctor who does straight forward EGDs, however I have been asked to review a different doctors notes and I am not familiar with the procedure he did. I have tried to research this and the answers I have gotten are not clear. Could someone look at this and tell me would I use 43239 or 44361? The information I received for 44361 says that is can only be used if the doctor documented how far by cm into the Jejunum he went but this is the code he billed. Any information and guidance on how to code this is appreciated.
