    Default Need help -Tracheoscopy with biopsy

    AAPC: Back to School
    Need help coding Tracheoscopy and bronchoscopy with biopsies through the trach. Have narrowed it down to 31615 for the scope portion, but how do I code the biopsies taken.

    Can you put here what the procedure note says? Was a laryngoscopy done also?
