The American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS) provides numerous valuable, free and members-only resources on billing and coding on its website.

One free ENT resource that was approved earlier this year is three Q&As on flexible laryngoscopic procedures.

The questions AAO-HNS addresses are as follows:

  • How do I code for percutaneous laryngeal injections using flexible endoscopic guidance?
  • What if the laryngeal injection is done through the flexible scope?
  • Is flexible laryngoscopy using a distal chip scope also coded with 31575-31578?

Access these Q&As on flexible laryngoscopic procedures.

ENT, immunology and allergy billing and coding is extremely complex and challenging. Failing to properly code and bill for services in these specialties can not only result in money left on the table but also heavy fines from CMS.

Contact PGM Billing, one of the nation’s leading providers of physician billing services, to find out how we can work with your allergy, immunology or ENT practice to help ensure you receive proper compensation for services provided and keep you out of legal hot water.
