Hi,

 

For modifiers while billing multiple units of 11423, 

Some payers prefer: 11423 Excision lesion 1; 11423-51 Excision lesion 2; 11423-51 Excision lesion 3, so on.

Some payers prefer: 11423 Excision lesion 1; 11423-59 Excision lesion 2; 11423-59 Excision lesion 3, so on.
Others including medicare intermediaries want: 11423 Excision lesion 1; 11423-59,51 Excision lesion 2; 11423-59,51 Excision lesion 3, so on.

So, it is payer specific. Contact your local payer for its policy details regarding this.

 

E/M codes are not seperetely reported with excision codes. You can try to bill 99213-25 with R03.0 if it gets paid. 

 

Hope that helps!
