Thread: Colonoscopy w/inadequate prep

    Default Colonoscopy w/inadequate prep

    AAPC: Back to School
    Doctor inserted scope and almost immediately encountered solid stool. The procedure was terminated. I'm coding for an ASC facility, so the procedure will be coded 45378-74. My quetion is around the DX codes. Would it be appropriate to use V64.1 or V64.3 in addition to pre-op DX in this situation?
