This is not really a screening, it's a follow-up/surveillance so V67.51 is inappropriate. If the colonoscopy is negative, you'd code V67.59 as the primary dx and V12.72 as the secondary dx. Some would say just coding V12.72 is allowable. If polyps are found you'd code the type of polyp as primary. Medicare and some commercial carriers have frequency limitations on screenings, BUT since you are not billing this as a screening you won't run into that problem. I code for ASC's so I'm not up on physician modifiers. If billing for the facililty side -76 would only be used if the same procedure was repeated on the same day. Hope this helps.
