One of our surgeons performed a EGD with Lesion removal by hot biopsy and also took a specimen to be sent for CLO testing for H.Pylorie. Should he charge for the collection of the specimen?

I can not find anywhere that it expressly states whether obtaining a specimen for CLO testing for the presence of H.Pylorie should be charged. If it is charged, I assume it is charged as procedure 43239.

The Encoder Pro bundles 43250 (Hot Biospy) and 43239 together but says that a modifier may be used if the 43239 is performed on a separate lesion. It is not being done on a separate lesion. It is taken from normal looking mucosa usually.

So do I charge only 43250, or 43250 and 43239-59?
