One of my providers has written out Ear Irrigation on the encounter form and I am having a hard time finding a CPT code for it. Can anyone help me?? :confused:

By ear irrigation, do you mean cerumen impaction removal? If so, use 69210
otherwise removal of nonimpacted cerumen is not reported separately.

Unless he used instruments to remove impacted cerumen, this is just an E/M visit. "Irrigation" does NOT equal 69210.
