CPT 00120 | Anesthesia For Procedures On External, Middle & Inner Ear | Including Biopsy

CPT code 00120 can be reported when an anesthesia provider performs an anesthesia service on a patient during procedures on the middle, external and inner ear. A biopsy is included in this procedure.

Description

The official description of the 00120 CPT code is: “Anesthesia for procedures on the external, middle, and inner ear, including biopsy; not otherwise specified.”

The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) assigned five base units to CPT 00120.

Procedure

An anesthesia provider performs a pre-operative evaluation of the patient. Then, the anesthesia provider induces the patient and monitors the patient during a procedure on the external, middle, and inner ear, including a biopsy, that a different provider performs.

The anesthesia provider notes any types and amounts of medications administered, all forms of monitoring used, patient responses, and the start and stops times of anesthesia care.

Following the procedure on the external, middle, or inner ear, the anesthesia provider oversees the patient’s transfer to post-anesthesia care.
