    This is a moderate sedation code with regard to diagnostic lower (and upper) gi endoscopies; the critical question is how to get reimbursed for this code?

    Default Did you get the PT to sign an ABN?

    If you did, don't forget the GA modifier to attach to the claim. Otherwise you will not be able to bill the patient if/when it gets denied. If you did not have the patient sign, you will have to write off the amount billed if the doctor is contracted with the insurance carrier or Medicare.

    Good luck!
