    Default dialation of ostomy
    Medical Coding Books
    Hi. .. My surgeon did a bedside procedure , dialating a small ostomy hole with a foley catheter. Is there any code I can use for this?

  2. Default
    unfortunately there is not a code for that. Also I would not bill for that anyway. I would just bill for the post op visit or office visit.
