My physician is performing BAL and biopsy through the estab trach.
The bronchoscopy CDR states they are done via nares or oral cavity, there is no mention of trach. Is there are way to bill a BAL or biopsy if it is done via trach? Can we use the traditional 31622-316XX?
My understanding of the 31615 is that the MD is specifically visualizing the conducting airways, not doing additional procedures.
Can anyone please help me?
