    Question Tympanoplasty w/ OCR

    AAPC: Back to School
    May we charge separately for a fascia graft taken postauricular incision & incision closed before doing the above procedure through the ear canal? We are using 69632 for the surgery, but not sure if graft should be charged however it is a separate incision. If we may charge graft, what is best CPT code to use (20926?)???
