Thread: icd-9 procedure codes for colonoscopy with biopsy

  1. #1

    Default

    I'm assuming you mean CPT code.

    A colonoscopy with a biopsy of the terminal ileum would be 45380.

    However, if you're looking for the ICD-9-CM Procedural code 45380 crosswalks to:

    45.25 Closed (endoscopic) biopsy of large intestine.

    A colonoscopy often includes a biopsy of the terminal ileum which doesn't effect the procedure code you would select. I don't have any official guidelines to refer you to, but I think the same is true for the ICD-9 Procedural code. So it's just my opinion, but I think you're safe with 45.25.
