    Default CPT Code 22630

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a question regarding cpt code 22630. I was told that these procedures can be done in an ambulatory surgery center as of 2011. It originally could only be performed in a hospital setting. I am having a difficult time confirming this information. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
