sinus balloon and lavage bu cannulation

Barbara Posted Tue 02nd of February, 2016 12:41:55 PM

Can you bill a 31295 dilation of maxillary sinus balloon together with a 31000 lavage by cannulation of maxillary sinus. It shows that a modifier can be put on code 31000. Is it included in the 31295 or can i bill it separately? Thank you in advance.

Thanks for the Query

I would suggest append modifier 59 or XU with cpt 31000.
