Removing a Nasal Pack

Removing a Nasal Pack

July 6, 2023

I have looked everywhere and cannot find a CPT code for removing a posterior nasal pack. I found CPT code 30906 for reporting control of a nasal hemorrhage when removing and replacing the pack. Can I report 30906 with Modifier 52 since my doctor is just removing the posterior nasal pack?

No, you do not report 30906. There is not a code ore removing a posterior pack unless you are replacing the pack at the same time. If you are only removing a pact then report an E/M CPT code or nasal endoscopy code (31231) whichever is more appropriate.
