    Default 30901 question

    AAPC: Back to School
    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

    The Coders Desk Reference...........

    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.
