    What DX code(s) do you use for Status Post PE Tubes? Just curious as to what others are using. I have come up with a few possibilities and am new to ENT coding. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Usually I use the reason for the PE Tubes, ie Serous Otitis Media or Acute Otitis Media, Middle Ear Effusion. I use that with an E&M code as we are checking the status of the condition which we put the PE Tubes into the ears.
