    Default Radio Frequency Thyroid Ablation

    AAPC: Back to School
    Looking for a code to report thyroid ablation. Can anyone help?

  2. #2


    There does not appear to be a code specific to RF ablation of thyroid,therefore would consider:

    60699 Unlisted procedure, endocrine system

    Hope this helps,
