    Default Uvulectomy?
    Medical Coding Books
    Hi List,
    What CPT code do I use for Laser excision of uvula?

    If it's just the uvula, CPT 42140, it does not matter that the MD uses the laser or a scapel; FYI, be sure you have supporting documentation that meets medical necessity, if this is being done for "snoring" it may not get covered.
