    Question Vocal cord injection

    AAPC: Back to School
    One of our providers is doing a vocal cord injection laryngoplasty using a flexible scope and injecting Radiesse. Not sure whether to use code 31571 or 31599. Any help would be apprecitated! Thanks

    I was just at a coding workshop, and the answer they gave was to use 31599 and J3590 for the drug. If you are using a mirror then you can code 31513 instead of 31599.
