    AAPC: Back to School
    I am looking for the correct code/s for excision of a hyperplastic polyp from the exteriorized portion of ileostomy stoma, 1 polyp removed, 2 cauterized, ileostomy bag then reapplied. Can't find a listed procedure that fits. Thanks.

    I am looking for help. My boss is interested in adding a nurse (RN) to our staff to see local and our ostomy patients for ostomy markings and care. I have been looking for a specific code and am under the impression that it may fall under an e/m code. Any help is appreciated.

    I asked this question earlier and did not get a good answer. Did you ever get any information?
