Yes. But it depends I guess. Is this for Medicare or a commercial payor? What other diagnosis would you use?
Here's a scenario:
A pt with family history of colon cancer primary relative (V16.0) comes in for a screening.
It would be G0105 for the cpt and V16.0 for the icd9/dx.
However if the doctor found something during the procedure then you would use that cpt (such as 45380-colon w/biopsy).
However if the pt came in and states they have diarrhea and a family history and the doctor feels he/she should do a procedure based on the symptoms/indications then you wouldn't use the G code because it wouldn't be a screening.
Hope this helps.
