    Default Help please - I am billing for a new gastro

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am billing for a new gastro doctor and have a question

    He is billing an EGD with biopsies with control of bleeding of gastric ulcer

    Do I bill 43239 and 43255?

    This may be a stupid question but I am learning.

    Thank you

    First of all, there is no such thing as a stupid answer! And we are always learning
    Yes, you should code 43239 and 43255-59.
