Question

I work at an ENT clinic and we see adults as well as children (not newborns). Is 92588 the appropriate code to use for billing (for OAE testing) for both groups of patients? If not, what would the appropariate codes be?

Answer

CPT 92588 should be used with all patients regardless of age if comprehensive OAE testing is conducted.
