    Please help! Need to find the most accurate code for this procedure and it has not been easy. From my understanding this is like a push enteroscopy, but more thorough. Have been calling around but have gotten a big run around.

    Everything I'm reading and people at my facility are saying is to code it as 44799 and to send documentation of the procedure. I could not get any definite on how to code this though.

    If this does not include Ileum use 44360
    if it does include Ileum go with 44376
