CPT for ENTs
CPT for ENT articles are not intended as legal, medical, or business advice and are not a guarantee of reimbursement. The information is also not meant to serve as the definitive or sole authority on billing and coding issues. The applicability of AAO-HNS billing and coding guidance for a particular procedure must be determined by the responsible physician in light of all the circumstances presented by the individual patient. You should consult with your own advisers, as well as Medicare or private carriers, when making any decisions about how to bill and code particular services or procedures.
While the Academy does not provide individualized coding or billing advice, we do offer several comprehensive resources to aid AAO-HNS members in their practice decisions. The Academy’s Coding Corner makes accessing the newest coding and reimbursement tools simple and straightforward for members.
As an alternative, if you have an individualized coding or billing question, and you are a member of the American College of Surgeons (ACS), you can access the ACS coding hotline at 800-227-7911.
For clinical feedback on your inquiry, please consider posting on ENTConnect.
