Need help coding excision and flap

Cindy Posted Tue 17th of May, 2011 18:14:41 PM

"Re-excision of R facial BCC w/rhomboid flap closure 1.5 x 2.0 cm" and "re-excision of SCC L ear helix w/helical advancement closure .5-.10 mm" Can anyone help with this?

For BCC one, the excision codes would be:21016, 14040.
For SCC one, the excision codes would be: 21015, 14060.
Since these were re-excision, so we can use post-op modifiers depending on whether performed withing Global period,or beyond Global period.
