Thread: NG Tube placement/exchange code

  1. #1

    Default NG Tube placement/exchange code

    AAPC: Back to School
    Provided Anesthesia for patient having a NG tube exchange. I found CPT code 43752, but does not list a code in the anesthesia crosswalk. Any suggestions?

    I have billed this as 01999 with the -23 modifier in the past with success. Of course you will need to have a comparison code for the payer to consider to determine base units and I compared it to 44500/00740.

    Hope this helps.

    This is a Medicare pt and we cannot seem to get 01999 paid! I appreciate the help...
