    Default How to bill hot snare polypectomy

    AAPC: Back to School
    If an MD performs hot snare removal of more than one polyp, can you bill multiple times ?

    You can bill only 45385(once), because the description says to remove one or more polyp(s), so i think no need to bill at multiple times..
