    Lightbulb DBE- Double Balloon Enteroscopy

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am trying to research valid codes for this procedure. Some sites have the unlisted and others give me a range of codes. What are you using? Any help is appreciated

    I don't like using unlisted codes but in this case I would go with the 44799 because there is no DB mentioned on the series of 44360-44397. I tried the Encoder but the suggestion was the above series of codes. I would attach the procedure report to the claim as well.
