    Did you actually do a colonoscopy or a hemorrhoidectomy or both? If you did a colonoscopy and the patients previous polyps were tubular adenomas then you would code G0105. Hope this helps!

    What if the pt has a history of polyps, type not stated, and a colonoscopy was done. The indication sasy "Hx of polyp surveillance". This is a medicare patient. Would you still use the G code (G0121)?
