    What is the correct way to bill bilateral advancement flaps for an ear repair? Cpt 14060 is what I want to use but the fact that he is doing bilateral flaps is making me wonder if i need to bill more that just 1-14060.

    You bill 14060 per defect being repaired so if two defects are being repaired you would bill 14060 and then 14060-59.

    Before your question can be answered appropriately, explain the "bilateral advancement flaps"...do you have the operative report?
