Peg tube Question

  1. #1
    Default Peg tube Question
    Medical Coding Books
    The endoscope was introduced through the mouth and advanced to the gastric stoma. G tube was removed with snare and external portion cut and tube pulled out a 20 French button was then inserted. Patient has medicare insurance. Would I bill for just a peg change? or do I also bill for removal of foreign body?

    I would just bill the peg change. Maybe with a 22 modifier but probably not.
