Thread: Medicare Colonoscopies

    Question Medicare Colonoscopies

    AAPC: Back to School
    The part I still not sure about is if the provider states Screening for history of Colonic polyps V12.72, and the patient has no other signs or symptoms. Do I put the V12.72 as primary since the provider states "screening" or do I list what is found during the procedure and then the V12.72

    You need a screening code listed first then your hx of polyps and then findings if any.
