Thread: Injection/Clip Placement

    Question Injection/Clip Placement

    AAPC: Back to School
    Looking for clarification on billing for a colonoscopy when a snare, saline injection and then a clip is placed. Does anyone know for sure how this should be done?? I've done alot of research and everything I find is confusing. It is my understanding that I should be able to bill 45381 and 45382 with the 45385, but i'm also getting conflicting information. Has anyone come across this before? Please help.....

    If the polypectomy caused the bleed, you cannot charge for control of bleeding.
