Thread: Repeat colonoscopy due to poor visualization

    Default Repeat colonoscopy due to poor visualization

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a Medicare patient that had a colonoscopy. We did get all the way to the cecum, however, the prep was so poor it made visualization very difficult. Pt. has hx of rectal CA and my physician felt he needed to have additional bowel prep and another colonscopy. These were done two consecutive days.

    So do I code G0105 on day 1
    and G0105-76 on day two.

    I'm not finding a dx for poor prep.

    Suggestions please.

    We code G0105-53 for physician services and G0105-74 for the amulatory surgical center.

    Our diagnosis is the indication or findings.
