Thread: Ear wick supply

  1. #1

    Default Ear wick supply

    AAPC: Back to School
    It is my understanding the provider may not bill for ear wick insertion since it is bundled into the primary procedure performed. However, if the provider bills only an E&M and ear wick insertion, is the supply separately billable? If so, is there a supply code for this? Thanks in advance for your help!

    Unfortunately, no, there is no code for placement of ear wick, if the physician uses binocular microscopy (92504) you bill that along with your E/M, otherwise, bill the appropriate E/M only.
