    What is the anesthesia code for a Proctosigmoidoscopy?

  2. #2


    Having no documentation as to what type of anesthesia given and if you cannot query with the physician, you can consider on this line, though. Usually, in practice for colonoscopy and proctosigmoidoscopy , it is done under moderate conscious sedation . Could fix with the appropriate one which meets the criteria for the code.
    IF G.A provided then I feel it suites 00902.
    While considering on such , better verify with the doctor the anesthesia actually provided
