30901 question

  1. Default 30901 question
    Exam Training Packages
    When you bill 30901 to control nasal hemorrhage in the ER, do you only use it when packing or cautery were done? Do you ever use it for the nasal clip applied? And if so do you know of any place this is documented. Thanks

    To control a less serious nosebleed in 30901, the physician applies electrical or chemical coagulation or packing materials to the anterior sections of the nose. Only limited electrical or chemical coagulation is used.

    The nasal clip is part of the E/M per CPT Assistant April 2012

    Question:is the appropriate CPT code to report the control of epistaxis by way of a nasal clamp (clip)?
    Answer: Placement of a nasal clamp (clip) is included in the appropriate level Evaluation and Management (E/M) code.
