    Default EGD with band ligation and Biopsy

    The doctor performed an EGD with band ligation for bleeding esophageal varices. But then went down further and took a biospy for the stomach. My question is are these bundled, or can I put a 59 on the biospy since they were each done for different reasons?

    Hopefully that make sense...

    Thanks

    I believe you can 59 the biopsy. Are you coding for an ASC?
