    Has anyone billed for a colonoscopy with stool transplant? What CPT and ICD-9 did you use? (this patient has C. Diff. Colitis)

    We just had our first one here also. I would be interested in the answer. Interesting procedure.

    There is no specific code for this. I just worked with a practice needing the same information. My suggestion is to use the unlisted procedure, intestine, 44799 with a diagnosis code for the condition, e.g. 008.45 for c-dif colitis. The payment will be based on the information sent with the claim since a claims examiner will price the service based on the report. I'm curious to see if anyone has received any reimbursement.

    thanks, I just sent mine out yesterday with the 44799, glad to see it was affirmed! LOL, will let you know if we receive anything. As far as I know, this is the only one ever done at this facility. We'll see. Thanks
