Does Ileal Conduit Count for M1630/Bowel Ostomy?

I could've sworn that I read somewhere recently that with OASIS-C, an ileal conduit should be considered as a bowel ostomy for the purpose of M1630. However, now I cannot find the reference. Was I dreaming that? If anyone can provide a reference to that info I would appreciate it.
Thank you, JaNell


  • No, it isn't a bowel ostomy, because it is not being used for evacuation of stool from the GI tract. For GI, you would say patient does not have ostomy, but for GU, you would answer '0' that patient is continent, has anuria or ostomy.
