    if phys. does both at same session?

  2. #2
    The codes for a colonoscopy via stoma start at 44388 and then are broken out if anything else is done (biopsy, removal of polyp, ablation, ect...)

  3. Default
    Is your MD doing the 45378 through the anus and then turning around and inserting the scope thru the stoma at the same session?
