Academy updates CPT for ENT articles

June 2016 - Vol. 35, No. 05

As part of a process to continue to provide the most up-to-date resources for our membership, Academy CPT experts have begun to reevaluate and update the Academy’s list of CPT for ENT articles.

CPT for ENT articles are a collaborative effort among the Academy’s team of CPT Advisors, Members of the Physician Payment Policy (3P) Workgroup, and health policy staff. Articles are developed to address common coding questions received by this health policy team as well as to clarify coding changes and correct coding principles for frequently reported ENT procedures. These updated articles help the Academy to provide Members with the latest coding resources.

These are the recently updated CPT for ENT articles: Transtympanic Therapeutic Injections and Laryngoscopy.

All updated CPT for ENT articles can be found at www.entnet.org/content/cpt-ents as part of the Academy’s Coding Corner.

In addition to CPT for ENT articles, the Academy’s Coding Corner offers access to AMA CPT Assistant articles, annual code change summaries, an updated annual list of the top 100 ENT billed services, template appeal letters, ICD-10 coding resources, and information on Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services quality initiatives and reporting programs.

All of these resources can be found at the Academy’s Coding Corner (www.entnet.org/content/coding-corner).
