Thread: Gastric Emptying Study

  1. #1

    Default Gastric Emptying Study

    AAPC: Back to School
    Need help. Patient has a history of gastroesophageal reflux. The patient is referred for a gastric emptying study. The impressions were: nondiagnostic study due to excessive patient motion. How should I code this? Would the dx be V64.3 and code the procedure to the injection of dye only (36598)?

    As per radiology,the code for Gastric emptying study is 78264 and here as it is a nondiagnostic study,it is a No charge and need not be billed
