    AAPC: Back to School
    Medicare patient

    Pt came in and had a family history of colon cancer v16.0
    Doctor did colonoscopy and didn't do anything. Found Diverticuli.

    IN THE ASC do I bill 45378

    Or Do I bill G0105 due to it only being a screening and did not become a procedure. The Patient did not have any symptoms before screening. Just Family History...
