    Hello.... the nurse from the ER just asked me about ear wicks and would this be included in the cerumen removal?

    Thoughts?

    That's not separately billable. See this article:
    http://www.supercoder.com/articles/a...n-right-wrong/

    If that was all that was done, it's included in the E/M.

    That article was old...here's a more recent one: http://www.practicevelocity.com/urge...umen_69210.php
    (Still old...sorry)

    It's in CPT Assistant, also, but I don't have access to that.
