Is excision of ear canal osteoma only payable if done in the hospital OR?

Marla Posted Fri 17th of January, 2014 09:34:29 AM

We received a denial for CPT code 69140- excision of ear canal osteoma because it was done in the office and the denial said that this code is listed as a hospital (facility) surgery.

69140 has a Non Facility Payment too. So it can paid in office also. Please ask for explanation from insurance .
