    Default small bowel endoscopy

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can anyone help with the appropriate coding for a small bowel endoscopy? The scope was advanced to the proximal jejunum. They took a cold forceps biopsy from the esophagus only and placed a capsule into the duodenal bulb.

    Thank you for the help
