    Default Screening C-Scope VS/ Removal of polyp

    AAPC: Back to School
    Pt come in for a screening Colonoscopy, durring which a polyp is found and removed. According to guidelines this is no longer a screening Colonoscopy and to list the DX code as screening 1st V76.51 and the polyp listed 2nd. This is medicare since they donot accept V codes without using the G0105. how is this billed out (45380) ?
    Thanks for any help

    you use the V code first listed and the polyp 2nd , and then the appropriate colonoscopy code (w/polypectomy or w/biopsy etc) and for Medicare add a PT modifer.
