    Question Submucosal Injection to snare polyp
    Medical Coding Books

    I have a report from one of our Physicians stating that he used 2ml submucosal injection under the base of a flat polp in order to lift it and snare it. Can I bill for the injection, or not?

    Any help for this would be appreciated
