11300 codes

Recommended Posts

Hi I work in dermatology , recently have been billing for 11300 codes to remove warts and isks. I’ve done them for two weeks or so and now the billing department  is requesting pathology? I’ve been billing them out as warts or isk codes so why is pathology even needed? Was I doing it incorrectly  ?  I can see why you would need path for 11100 codes for d48.5 dx but for 11300 codes I don’t see why this would need a pathology if it’s for the wart or isk codes

 

any advice? Thank. You!

I agree with you.  If you were coding in the 11100s or 11600s, path would be clearly appropriate, if not outright necessary.  I think your billing people are in error--I would call and see why they think this would be relevant in the case of a non-suspicious lesion.
