What HCPCS code(s) should beassigned?HCPCS: ______________________________________Review the following medical coding scenario. Assign all ofthe ICD-10 and CPT codes for the diagnoses and proceduresindicated in the scenario.After being evaluated by his gastroenterologist, Mr. Jacksonwas sent to the hospital for a diagnostic esophagogastroduodenoscopy.He is having several symptoms that indicate apotential gastrointestinal condition. As a result, he was admittedin observation. His symptoms include vomiting, weightloss, and dysphagia. The esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealsthat the patient has low-grade Barrett’s esophagus, GERDwith reflux esophagitis and a non-obstructing hiatal hernia.Patient was also incidentally diagnosed with Crest Syndrome(CRST), which correlates with his complaint of dysphagia.After the procedure, the patient was noted to have severalPVC’s on his EKG. These resolved shortly after the patientarrived in the recovery room. Based on the results of thedetailed history, detailed, exam, and straight forward medicaldecision making, it was decided that the patient could be dischargedhome on the same day with instructions for a followup office appointment in 2 days. Code this scenario.ICD-10: ____________________________________________________CPT: ____________________________________________________
