    Question PORP/TORP code

    AAPC: Back to School
    Just wanted to verify...We had a physician perform code 69633 (tympanoplasty w/o mastoidectomy, with ossicular chain reconstruction and synthetic prosthesis). He used a PORP (partial ossicular synthetic protheseis)...when coding for the PORP (prosthesis) is it correct to use code D5914 (or D5927 if it is a replacement)? We haven't billed for this before and I want to make sure tht is correct. Thanks in advance

    hmmm I've never used the D codes..I'd be interested in the outcome. I've always used the L8699 for the PORP.
