    Default Hx of Polyps

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can the Hx of Polyps V code be the primary DX for Colonoscopys and EGD's? Will it pay?

    I have done it if there is nothing else. If they find anything else like diverticulosis I put that first, but if there is only hx of polyps I believe it will be just fine.
