Hello all,
I am trying to bill an in office nasal polyp biopsy. My doctor wants to bill as 31237- Nasal/sinus endoscopy surgical; with biopsy, polypectomy or debridement. I suggested instead 30100 intranasal biopsy or 30110 nasal polyp excision. Which is correct?

Thanks in advance.

If it required use of an endoscope you would use 31237. The codes you are suggesting do not require an endoscope only forceps and scalpel.

Thank you! I went back to the doctor and he said yes he was going to use the endoscope. He normally doesn't use it when he does a nasal biopsy which is why I suggested those codes.
