My doctor removed two accessory fingers. One from each hand. CPT gives us code 26587 but states that if the specimen is soft tissue only then use code 11200. Since 11200 is for multiple skin tags up to 15 lesions and the path report showed only skin and cartilage would I only code 11200 once? A digit was removed from each hand and the modifier 50 is not on the approved modifier list for this code.
