Guest Benny Guy Posted March 21, 2012 Report Share Posted March 21, 2012 I believe colonoscopy screening for patients 50 yrs and older are covered as a preventative service under PPACA. However, what about a colonoscopy screening that reveals a polyp and the polyp is removed, without patient consent, then the procedure is billed in full because it is now a surgery and not a preventative screening. Is that legit? I'm having a tough time finding the particulars of how this should be billed under PPACA. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
