Why Billing & Coding for Gastroenterology Give Providers Heartburn

Gastroenterology, with its diverse array of procedures and diagnostic tests, introduces complexities that demand a careful approach to ensure accurate billing and reimbursement. 

For instance, the intricate nature of coding for a wide range of gastroenterological procedures, from routine endoscopies and colonoscopies to more complex interventions like liver biopsies and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). Each procedure involves specific codes, and errors in coding can lead to claim denials, delayed reimbursements, and revenue loss. 

Gastroenterologists frequently encounter challenges in documenting and coding for the evaluation and management (E/M) services associated with patient visits. Accurate documentation of the complexity and severity of the patient’s condition is crucial for proper code selection, yet this process is often time-consuming and prone to oversights, affecting the revenue cycle. 

Often, Gastroenterologists perform procedures in ambulatory surgery centers, hospitals, or office-based settings, each with its own billing protocols. Ensuring consistency and accuracy in coding across these diverse settings requires high organizational efficiency.

The Codes Causing Digestive Dilemmas In Your Cashflow

Mastering the art of coding is pivotal to securing optimal reimbursement in gastroenterology. Delving into Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) and International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes reveal specific pitfalls that, if unnoticed, can markedly influence your cash flow.

CPT Codes

45378 (Colonoscopy, flexible, with biopsy)

Ensure the biopsy is performed for a specific identified lesion or medical necessity, clearly noting the indications in the procedure notes.

43235 (Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, esophagus, and stomach)

Accurately document the specific areas examined in the upper gastrointestinal tract, including any abnormalities or findings.

43248 (Esophagogastroduodenoscopy, flexible, transoral; with endoscopic ultrasound examination)

Clearly specify the need for an endoscopic ultrasound examination and document the findings, such as the location and characteristics of any identified lesions.

45385 (Colonoscopy, flexible; with ablation of tumor(s), polyp(s), or other lesion(s) not amenable to removal by hot biopsy forceps, bipolar cautery, or snare technique)

Document the medical necessity for ablation, including the type of lesion and why other removal techniques are not suitable.

Common ICD 10 Codes

K21.9 (Gastro-esophageal reflux disease without esophagitis)

Clearly describe the severity and impact of gastro-esophageal reflux disease on the patient's health, supporting the code choice.

K52.9 (Non-infective gastroenteritis and colitis, unspecified)

Provide detailed documentation of symptoms, duration, and any diagnostic tests performed to support the diagnosis.

K63.5 (Polyp of colon)

Specify the characteristics of the colon polyp, including size, morphology, and any associated symptoms or risks.
