In our practice, we bill the E/M with 25 modifier, auditory testing and G0268 together and do receive reimbursement. It is helpful if there is a different diagnosis available as primary for the E/M visit and then code the G0268 with cerumen impaction. A 69210-59 will generally not pay if there is auditory testing even with the modifier. But, the G codes specifically allows for cerumen removal with auditory testing. Hope this helps.
