Gtube Replacement

  1. #1
    Default Gtube Replacement
    Medical Coding Books
    Just wondering if someone would be able to help with
    coding the following- I also put this out on the Gen.Sx
    forum but no answer to date: Replacement of jejunostomy tube (Not under fluro guidance) I was looking at CPT 43760 also needed ICD9: Displaced jejunostomy tube TIA

  2. Default Gastro replacement
    I would use the 43760 for the replacement. The Diagnosis I would use is V55.1 which is removal or replacement of g-tube. You could also use 569.60 or 569.62 depending on the reason for the tube change.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks so much for your help - They were the codes I was
    leaning towards, sometimes I just overthink or lack confidence
