    Cool Colonoscopy with dilation plus biospy

    Promo: Code Books
    One of our Dr.'s preformed a colonoscopy with dilation at the termial ileum while doing this procedure he also obtained a biopsy. Should I just be coding the colon w/dil? or should I also code the biopsy? Hoping someone can offer some advice. Thank you.

    Hi Britteo,

    As per Dr operative report we should go for both procedure, as he perform distinct procedure dilation and biopsy.

    so we should code both procedure as per scenario.
