I very much appreciate your help, and I am not trying to belabor the point, but did you notice at the top it states, "The wax is extracted with a cerumen spoon or delicate forceps or by irrigation." When my doctors come to me, and we have this as a source I am going to need something that will substantiate that I cannot bill this as a procedure. I will tell you that that for years I have held the same view that you are stating, but the wording in this coding companion is causing me to question which is more accurate. I have used the companion to back up other issues I have had, and for me to tell them that we cannot bill this I am going to need something pretty creditable. Being in the field, I am sure you can understand my dilemma. Can you give me another source to use?
