Many practitioners would rather do a skin procedure than code for the service. Skin procedures aren’t just a staple of Dermatology, though. Family physicians and clinicians in Urgent Care Centers also do these.
This webinar will tell coders and practitioners how to document and code biopsies, including the new 2019 CPT biopsy codes, destruction of benign and malignant lesions, and repairs. It includes specific examples of how to bill for multiple procedures with the correct modifiers, and when to use modifier -51, -59 and -58.
After the session, participants will be able to:
- Describe the required documentation elements for these procedures
- Know when to use destruction codes from the integumentary chapter and when to use codes from other chapters
- What modifier to use for multiple procedures
