Is the doctor 100% sure the bleeding is from the hemmorhoids? Can he/she see that? Does he/she state anywhere in the notes pt has rectal bleeding and that is an indication for the procedure?
If the bleeding is incidental to the hemmorhoids and the doctor is not treating the bleeding/or source and the only indication they state is screening, then yes, it's a screening.
And you are correct on the dx coding. V76.51 followed by any findings.
