If the patient has a history of colon polyps I always bill the V1272. That is the reason they are coming in for the colonoscopy. It also explains to the insurance company why the patient may be coming in sooner than normal to have their colonoscopy (2 years, 5 years, etc). I only bill the V7651 if the patient is having no signs, symptoms or personal or family history of polyps or colon cancer. Hope this helps! Have a Happy and Save New Year!
