Thread: Polyp Code

  1. #1

    Default Polyp Code

    AAPC: Back to School
    Recently my docotrs have been using 569.0 as opposed to 211.4. They have never been in the habit of using 569.0 until we began using the EndoWirter software. Can anyone give me a clear difference in the two codes? I greatly appreciate any and everyones input.

    So sorry that message seemed have thought out. The codes are for anal/rectal polyps. I am looking for something a little more in depth that jsut what is in the ICD 9 book. Thanks again

    Non adenomatous rectal polyp is coded as 569.0 as against to 211.4 which is adenomatous rectal polyp.
