Gastroenterology Billing: A Complex Mix

Gastroenterology encompasses a wide range of procedures, including diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopies used to examine and treat the digestive system. Common ones include:

  • CPT Code (45378) – Colonoscopy, flexible, proximal to splenic flexure
  • CPT code (43260) – Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)

Challenges to Reimbursement

Several factors can hinder gastroenterology billing and reimbursement:

  • Coding Complexity:

Assigning the right codes, ensuring proper documentation, and proving medical necessity are crucial for successful claims. Inadequate proof can lead to denials for diagnostics, medications, and procedures. expEDIum stays updated on Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs) to ensure your claims meet all requirements.

  • Outdated Medical Records:

Incomplete or outdated insurance information can significantly impact billing. expEDIum’s team verifies insurance details before services are rendered, saving you time and money.
