Thread: lysis intranasal synechia

  1. #1

    Default lysis intranasal synechia

    AAPC: Back to School
    I billed for lysis of intranasal synechia under endoscopic guidance with CPTs 30560 and 31231 and I received a denial for the 30560 stating inclusive. Not sure if I billed this correctly. Should I have billed only one CPT for this (possibly 31237 ?)or should I be putting a 59 modifier on the 30560??? Any help is appreciated!

    You should be using code 31237 to report this service.
