    Default Different code for endoscopic septoplasty?

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am still new to the coding world and am needing to code for an endoscopic septoplasty. So would this be different than the 30520?

    Thanks for your help!

    No, regardless of the use of the endoscope, it is still a septoplasty and 30520is correct.

    Default 30520

    30520, 31276-51, 30802-51 - they are billing 31276 with 30520 for procedure will be done thru endoscopy - shoud lit be billed separately?
