    Default 91110 Capsule Endoscope Delivery Device

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know of a seperate procedure for the placement of the "Pill Cam" to the stomach or small intestine of a patient? The patient cannot swallow the pill and it must be placed by the physician. Capsule Endoscope Delivery Device.

    How did the Dr place the capsule?

    Device used to place capsule: On occassion our physician has used a Roth Net – a butterfly net, similar to one used to ensnare polyps – to place the capsule endoscopy to aid those patients who have difficulty passing the device into the colon. Report code 91110 and code 43235 (upper GI endoscopy, diagnostic) if a device (eg, Roth Net) is used to place the capsule endoscopically.

    Few payers pay anything extra for the Roth Net itself (GCPS 12/03). To code Roth Net you would have to use 99070 and probably send a separate explanation of what it was used for – invoice if necessary for a commercial carrier.

    Additional coding info/billing guide and U.S. Endoscopy does not provide reimbursement information for the Roth Net. (See Given’s guide at: http://www.givenimaging.com/Cultures...Reimbursement/ and visit U.S. Endoscopy, based in Mentor , Ohio , at http://www.usendoscopy.com/rothnet.html.
    Hope this helps!
