    Can anyone tell me if performing an emema tubing procedure for constipation is included in E/M code or is it a separately billable procedure?

    Procedure reads: Rectal exam performed. Moderate amount of stool in vault. Enema tubing inserted. Patient ablt to tolerate 400 cc's of fluid.Held for one minute.

    Thanks for any help.
