    Default 43215 vs 43247

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am an ED coder and don't do much endoscopy coding. The doctor states he did an EGD but did he? He removed several FBs from the esophgus by pushing them into the stomach. Does this qualify 43247 or should it be 43215?
    thanks for any help.

    This should qualify for a 43247.
