Cryotherapy
« on: November 15, 2017, 12:10:12 PM »
Patient come to clinic to have a skin lesion checked out.  Provider determines it is a wart and performs cryotherapy.  Can a 99212 and a 17110 be charged?

This is kind of like the laceration repair question.  I'm leaning towards the same response.  Both services can be billed, it's really a question of how they will be processed.  Again, if there are no other dxs and the 25 modifier isn't warranted then it will most likely get bundled or denied.  Billing the two together doesn't break the rules as long as your coding matches what is in the chart.   Sometimes we get caught up in what will pay when determining what we bill.  Basically you should bill any/all services performed.  Then the insurance will determine what will be covered.
