Documenting and Coding MOHS Micrographic Surgery in 7 Steps
Jump Start Your Skin Biopsy Coding
Skin biopsy procedures have changed. For many years we have used 2 codes to report skin biopsies; CPT 11100 for the first lesion and 11101 for each additional lesion biopsied after the first lesion on the same date of service. These codes included all methods of removal. The new code ranges are CPT 11102-11107 and are reported based on method of removal which allows for greater specificity. New guidelines were created to help with coding and reporting of these codes. It is imperative to develop a clear understanding of the new codes and requirements to get paid right the first time.
