A physician wants to perform lesion removals and perform adjacent tissue rearrangement.
I am aware documentation must support 2 separate incisions/defects.

My question is, can ATR be billed for lesions under 1cm? Is there a "minimal" requirement?

I have research this and can not find anything. Some of these are lesions of .5cm and less.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1 - 2 sq cm seems a little small to need such an advanced closure technique. What's the total defect size? The lowest code is <10 sq cm so it doesnt seem there is a minimum defect size.
