I'm new to ENT. In the past this cpt 30140 has also been billed as a bilateral procedure. I'm looking in CPT 2008 and it doesn't stated it can be billed bilaterally. It says partial or complete.

So I understand this to mean no modifier 50 should be added to this code if it is done as a bilateral procedure. Correct?

Thank You
Melanie

Bilateral allowed

It is still a bilateral allowed procedure...it says "turbinate". I also double checked my CPT expert as well as Encoder cause you had me worried for a sec. :)

Thank you. I was looking in a Ingenix coding companion and it didn't offer the bilater information there. Sorry to have worried you. Thanks again. :)
