Hyperplastic rectal polyp dx code

  1. Default Hyperplastic rectal polyp dx code
    Medical Coding Books
    I am new to gastro coding and see the term hyperplastic quite frequently on the pathology reports for rectal polyps. I am wondering if these would be coded as 211.4 or 569.0?

    569.0 is not otherwise specified so it would be 211.4.

    211.4, as syllingk stated.

    We use 569.0. The ICD-9 index under polyp, rectal states adenomatous are 211.4. Non-adenomatous rectal polyps are 569.0. Everything I find indicates that even though hyperplastic polyps are benign, they are not adenomatous.

    We also use 569.0.

    yes agree with bridgette

    I also bill 569.0 if the rectal polyp comes back as non-adenomatous
