Lesion removal and Curettage and Destruction

Karin Posted Sun 29th of January, 2012 23:10:20 PM

If you excise a malignant lesion and bill 11602 and then at that same location or site you do a curettage and destruction 17262. The physician wants to put a modifier 59 on the 17262? I feel that it would be incorrect? It is not a different site so the 17262 is bundled into the 11602 per the CCI edits. Thanks for any advice...
