    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm new to otolarngology coding and need some help with an op report

    Procedure performed was a partial thyroidectomy with-
    Intraoperative ultrasound and
    Intraoperative laryngeal nerve monitoring x2 hours

    Can anyone help me with the ultrasound and nerve monitoring codes?

    Thanks in advance.

    Code 95920 is an add on code however the surgeon cannot bill for this, it must be someone other than the surgeon or co-surgeon. Good luck
