  1. Default 45330?
    Medical Coding Books
    Patient came for screening colonoscopy but flex sig performed due to suboptimal prep. United Healthcare. Procedure rescheduled for next morning. No diagnosis made. Do all payors want these coded with mod 53? Do I code primary diagnosis V76.51?

    Given the information provided that is how I would code it using a secondary dx from the V64.x category.
