    S2080 - Laser Assisted Uvulopalatoplasty

    It is the only code that comes up when I search for uvulopalatoplasty, and it is not Medicare covered.

    It will be a payer-approved code only.

  • Wouldn't you use 42145? I thought the method did not matter.

    I am definitely not an ENT coder, but I found this when the original poster sent me an additional question:
