Thread: Nasal valve collapse

    Question Nasal valve collapse

    AAPC: Back to School
    Has anyone coded a nasal valve collapse repair? CPT 30465 codes a septoplasty w/repair of vestibular stenosis, but how do I bill when the only procedure performed is the valve?:

    CPT guidelines state that 30465 is repair of vestibular stenosis. I dont recall it stating anything about Septoplasty.
