One of my providers did a skin lesion scraping for culture of the labia majora and sent out to lab company to process.
She doesn’t know what the CPT code is for this procedures.The dx codes on the claim is N89.8 and B37.2. The N89.8 Vaginal lesion is the code she is using for the procedure. There is no lesion size listed. She just scrapped the skin and sent out for culture. what would the CPT code for this? please let me know.

For skin lesion scraping for culture of the labia majora we will use CPT codes from the range 11305 till 11308 depending upon the size of lesion. However, if the size is not mentioned we will take the lowest code. (e.g: CPT 11305 Shaving of epidermal or dermal lesion, single lesion, scalp, neck, hands, feet, genitalia; lesion diameter 0.5 cm or less). Thank you.
