Sinuplasty

Has anyone coded a surgery for sinuplasty, this is utilizing a ballon for dialation of the sinuses. I know there is a temporary code (S2344) which is fine for our commercial insurance patients. We were told to use the normal endoscopic codes for Medicare and Medicaid (31254-31276). Is this correct? Is any other ENT's doing this procedure? If so would you not use the unspec code (31299)?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Belinda

Belinda,

We are getting ready to bill for this procedure where I work. I found a great article on the website Candyr73 mentioned. I've posted the link to their website for you. The article is approximately 8th down the list. Hope this helps!
