    Exclamation endo placement of frontal sinus stent

    AAPC: Back to School
    Has anyone found a code for the placement of a stent (Stratus drug-eluting stent) in the frontal recess, done edoscopically?

    I code for facility and doctor. I'm having a tough time with the cpt and the icd-9 vol. 3 procedure codes.

    Any assitance would be greatly appreciated.

    Default sinus stents

  3. #3

    Default Unlisted

    We use unlisted CPT 31299 with fee attached for Propel stent in frontal sinus
    the temporary codes 0406T and 0407T only include ethmoid sinus
