    Default Removal Septal Button

    AAPC: Back to School
    What CPT code would you use for removal of a septal button performed as a hospital outpatient (under anesthesia). The button was not dislodged, but was causing pain. Thank you for your assistance.

    Default Need op note to be certain

    For an accurate response to procedural coding questions, please post the scrubbed operative / procedure note.
    Have you looked at 30300 or 30310?

    Hope that helps.
