    Default Endoscopic fundoplication

    AAPC: Back to School
    My docs are wanting predetermination for an endoscopic fundoplication. I do not have the dictation yet for the office visit. Does anyone have any idea what CPT code I might use for that. Evidently one of the docs went to a meeting and found about it. I am totally clueless - patient has GERD. Thanks for any suggestions.

    You use 43499 with notes for now but really make sure your insurance carriers know exactly what your surgeon is doing when you preauth. Some say it's covered but then come back to say it's too new or experimental.
