69210 Under General Anesthesia

    Default 69210 Under General Anesthesia
    Medical Coding Books
    We have an elderly patient who is not tolerating cerumen impaction removal in the office after several attempts. The ENT is going to perform under general anesthesia. Is it still appropriate to use 69210?

    Thanks in advance!
