    I'm looking at 11462. Can I bill this x 3? It doesn't state if single or multiple. 2 excisions were on the left and 1 on the right.

    Hi,

    You need to report CPT code 11462 for excision of hidradenitis inguinal simple and 11463 for complex repair, report appropriate code  as per the documentation.

    No, you canot report 11462*3 as MUE for 11462 is 1, but you can report 11462-50 for bilaterel excision.

    Hope that helps!
