Can you give an example? 10+ procedures is a heck of a lot! 10 on one person?
if there is a 45385, 45384, 45379, 45383 or a 45382 you would use a 59 on any of the second procedures as long as they are seperate meaning doc has to take the scope out and re-insert or be doing a procedure on another part of the colon.
For example: 45385 snare removal of polyp.
45380 (59) biopsy of same polyp (leftover) but doc withdrew the scope and re-inserted
or 45384 hot biopsy of polyp ascending colong
45380 (59) biopsy of polyp transverse colon
