Gastroenterology prior authorization has always been a time consuming and frustrating task for many, especially for its intricate nature and diverse principles.
Intended to maintain care standards for the patient suffering from gastroenterology problems and improve safety and regulate costs, gastroenterology prior authorization today has become a cumbersome process that is difficult to navigate. Extended to multiple services and procedures by insurers and more new CPT® codes; today without the right resources operating gastroenterology prior authorization is creating confusion and errors.
In fact, here are few common gastroenterology codes that require prior authorization and are often mistaken are-
43239 – Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy including esophagus, stomach, and either the duodenum and/or jejunum as appropriate; with biopsy, single or multiple
99204 – Office or other outpatient visit for the evaluation and management of a new patient, which requires a medically appropriate history and/or examination and moderate level of medical decision making and 99214 is for an established patient.
45380-Colonoscopy, flexible; with biopsy, single or multiple and code 45385 is however used for colonoscopy as well but with polypectomy; all these can be confusing at times for many.
