Otoacoustic emissions are reimbursable using the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes. To date, health care reimbursement has varied in terms of cost per test but no problems have arisen if the appropriate codes are utilized. The most typical CPT code for OAE screening is:
92587: Evoked otoacoustic emissions; limited (single stimulus level, either transient or distorted products). This is the most typical code and would be considered a “screening” code.
92588: Comprehensive or diagnostic evaluation (comparison of transient and/or distortion product otoacoustic emissions at multiple levels and frequencies). This is for diagnostic OAE testing.
The EroScan Pro hand-held unit runs on batteries and allows you to move from room to room. The probe also makes it easy to maneuver around the head of your patient to attain a tight ear seal.
