Paper patch removal

Tierni Posted Wed 15th of February, 2017 15:45:47 PM
The provider applied a paper patch during a tympanic membrane repair. The patient returned 12 days later and the patch was removed. Can we bill 69200 for the removal of the patch?

Greetings from SuperCoder.com!

 

Removal of tubes/paper patch is included in CPT code 69610 and should not be reported separately.

 

Please feel free to write if you have any concern or questions.

 

Thanks.
