One of our physicians is scheduling a nasal wall reconstruction with Latera®. He is wanting to use code 30465 (repair nasal vestibular stenosis). I know there is a code for Latera which is 30468 and I feel we should use this code. Please give me your opinion.
CPT 30468 was created specifically for procedures such as the Latera implant. It is absolutely incorrect to use 30465 for this procedure.
