No, you cannot bill for bleed control when the physician intervention caused the bleed. See this from the article "Colonoscopy Coding Made Simple," from CPT Assistant: "Bleeding that starts as a result of a therapeutic intervention (e.g., snare removal, biopsy, etc) and is controlled by any method is considered part of the initial therapeutic procedure and should not be reported separately with codes 45382 or 45381."
