69801 is the correct code for this procedure. The description reads :
Labyrinthotomy, with or without cryosurgery including other nonexcisional destructive procedures or perfusion of vestibuloactive drugs (single or multiple perfusions); transcanal
I would provide your physicians with the detailed code description. Also the American Academy of Otolaryngology does have a section on their website answering some common ENT questions. Here is the link for this topic:
Hope this helps.
