VEMP

Question:  

Our audiologist is doing this new test called VEMP? The equipment vendor gave me a big long list of codes to bill for this test including the ENG, EMG and other diagnostic testing codes. It just doesn’t seem right. What is your advice?

Answer:

We agree that billing ENG and EMG codes isn’t accurate for the VEMP test. Actually, the March 2011 CPT Assistant that is published by the American Medical Association states that there is no code for vestibular evoked myogenic potential (VEMP) testing. Therefore, an unlisted code (92700) is used to report this service.
