    Smile ear irrigation

    By ear irrigation, do you mean cerumen impaction removal? If so, use 69210
    otherwise removal of nonimpacted cerumen is not reported separately.

    Default Ear irrigation

    Unless he used instruments to remove impacted cerumen, this is just an E/M visit. "Irrigation" does NOT equal 69210.
