How should punch biopsy be reported - 11100/11101?

Yes. Code 11100 may be reported for a single or first biopsy, regardless of size. However, you should always consider location. If a punch biopsy is taken of certain areas, such as the lip , external ear  or eyelid , it is appropriate to report the code for that specific body area.
