Thread: Hemostatic Clipping Device Implant-Colonoscopy

    Default Hemostatic Clipping Device Implant-Colonoscopy

    AAPC: Back to School
    Doctor did colonoscopy, removed polyp by snare-45385. Doc used a hemostatic clipping device to mark the spot, and minimize risk of perforation. Is there a code I can use for this implant? Our facility wants me to bill all implants, to have on record and for some that do pay. My patient has Medicaid. I appreciate any info.

    clips are not seperately reimburseable. Only way to recoup is to adjust your contract for higher cost procedures.
