    Default excision tympanic inclusion cyst

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hey has anyone coded the excision of a tympanic inclusion cyst would I use the 69222 or would it be unlisted. It was on the tympanic membrane but he did not do a myringotomy he excised the cyst off of the membrane.

    If it was on the outer side of the tympanic membrane (assuming it was), have you looked at 69145? Just a thought.

    No that wasn't it we ended up using the unlisted. I am really suprised there is not a code for this after research I found out alot about the procedure but nothing about a cpt code.
