Cpt 31645

  1. Default Cpt 31645
    New Call-to-action
    Can you please tell me if you would use 31645 for the removal of a mucus plug? The patient was an inpatient and bronchoscopy was done to remove mucus plug. Two days later patient had another bronchoscopy to remove mucus plug so a 31646 should be used?

    Thank you
