Chapter 10 / Endoscopic gastrointestinal procedures

The benefit for endoscopic therapeutic procedures includes an amount for diagnostic endoscopy. This should therefore not be charged for separately.

The benefit for gastroscopy and sigmoidoscopy includes an amount for sedation.

Many pathological processes eg cholecystitis result in the formation of adhesions. Adhesiolysis is therefore part of these procedures. We no longer have a specific code for division of adhesions. When major problems due to adhesions are encountered, we request that a note of explanation is provided and we will give consideration as to whether we will pay additional benefit.
