    Default EGD and hemostasis therapy
    Medical Coding Books
    We have a physician who gave us an EGD with both resolution clip and epinephrine injection hemostatis therapy. Anyone have any suggestions to what code to bill? Would 43255 be appropriate or 43236? Any help is appreciated!

    If the patient was actively bleeding, I would use 43255.
