Middle turbinate resection

  1. Unhappy Middle turbinate resection
    Medical Coding Books
    Has anyone been able to get reimbursement for middle turbinate resection when there is no ethmoidectomy performed. If so how was it coded?

    our ASC usually see this w/ the ethmoidectomy but the CPT suggests 30999 for superior/middle turbinate procedures.
