Hi Rachael - You mentioned 'the provider' - if you aren't the provider, can you get a copy of the op note? Then you could see what really happened. If 30930 was correctly coded (and you won't be able to know this until you get a copy of the op note), then you're right, the code describes fracturing of the inferior turbinate bone. There are other cpt codes that describe excision or submucous resection of turbinates.
A good resource for information is the website for the American Academy of Otolaryngology.
Hope this helps.
