Diagnosis order for colonoscopy w/history of polyps

    Default Diagnosis order for colonoscopy w/history of polyps
    New Call-to-action
    I know this is the age old question, yet the more research my staff does the more confused it becomes... Since I am in Administration I am looking to our coding community for assistance

    1. What is the correct diagnosis order for a Pt who had a polypectomy 5 yrs ago and returning for another colonoscopy?
    2. polypectomy 10 yrs ago?

    Many thanks!

    Default Polypectomy hx
    I would use Z86.010 for both but curious to see what others are using tbh.

    Patient last one was 2009
    2013- no polyps.
