CPT for ENT: Endoscopic Laryngoplasty
Q: How can I report an endoscopic laryngoplasty?
A: The Academy recommends the use of CPT code 31599- Unlisted code, larynx to report an endoscopic laryngoplasty. Physicians should not use CPT codes 31580-31588 to report this procedure, as these CPT codes describe open procedures.
It is imperative that you select a CPT code that specifically reflects the procedure you performed to ensure appropriate reimbursement. In the absence of such a CPT code, use the most appropriate unlisted CPT code description to indicate the procedure.
