Thread: Egd with Stent Removal

    Default Egd with Stent Removal

    I am looking for a CPT code to fit the procedure. A insurance verification specialist for a ASC is wanting a code to use while she is verifying benefits. I can't find a code that has "stent removal" with the EGD codes. Any assistance is appreciated!!

    How far is your doctor planning on scoping? There is 43215 which says it includes removal of esophageal stent but is only for scoping I think the esophagus. Then there is 43247 which says it includes removal of esophageal stent but the scope has to go to the duodenum and/or jejunum. Hope that helps.

    I gave her the 43215 to use for now.. I don't believe he will be scoping to the jejunum, but I will pass along the code as well. Thank you for your help! Its always nice to get another set of eyes and ears on this stuff.
