I am trying to code a sebaceous cyst excision forehead. CPT code 11442 seems to be the right code, however, icd 9 code 706.2 is not valid. Any suggestions?

Your coding does seem to be appropriate. Some payers do list 706.2 as a covered diagnosis, so if you were checking a general list it may help to check the individual payer's specific policy.
