Hi Rana,

 

Thanks for your question.

 

Code 67840 has MUE of 3, which means this code can be billed three times on the same date of service. So, if doctor has removed two lesions, then you may bill two unit of this code with an appropriate modifier.

 

Please feel free to write if you have any question.

 

Thanks
