Hi - I've search and can not find the either local or national determination for lesion removal 17000 - it just takes me to the excision cpt codes - if anyone has a copy of this or tell me the magic to find it I would appreciate it.

This is the link to the medicare coverage database. click 'search' on the left hand side of the page. Enter 'lesion removal' in the keywords box and select your geographic region, then click search now. you should receive related lcd's.

I 17000 can be used for 702.0 *ctinic keratosis if you use it with and EM service make sure u have another dx code and a 25 modifier. Its a col 2 code if u are using another dest code 17110 for warts or sks. I hope this isn't too late to help
