Thread: Biopsy of Middle Ear

    Question Biopsy of Middle Ear

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is there a code out there for biopsy of the middle ear? In my research it seems that an unlisted code might be the way to go. Is there anything that is even similar to this type of procedure?
    Thank you!

    Good morning,

    The unlisted code 67999 unlisted for biopsy of the middle ear will be the correct way to go, This also includes the excision.
