Accurate and complete coding of provider services related to skin procedures is challenging: the codes themselves are complicated and the code definitions often do not match the terms used by providers. CPT®: Coding of Skin Lesion Procedures provides detailed understanding of the structure of the CPT coding system, the guidance specific to proper coding of skin lesion procedures, and clinical knowledge of skin anatomy, skin lesions, and current medical procedures.
- Skin Biopsies and the hierarchy for coding of multiple biopsies
- How the location of the biopsy affects coding
