    Question application code
    Medical Coding Books
    our ent dr wants to bill for the application of the drug mitomycin. the dr used a 2mg per 5ml solution that the pledgets had been dipped in and then were placed on the wound. the procedure was Microdirect laryngoscopy and Microdirect Bronchoscopy w/co2 laser and Mitomycin application.
    Can anyone give me the application code? Maybe direct me to so documentation for the application code.

    thanks: confused:

    There is no such code that I am aware of, your surgeon obviously laser excised a vocal cord lesion and than applied a medication to the wound, that would be considered part of the procedure; as this was done in an OR setting, you could not bill for the medication either.
