Good Morning,

I am reviewing a documentation and the provider notes "appears to be seborrheic keratosis"

I am saying that this is not a confirmatory diagnosis, and should not be coded as seborrheic keratosis.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks, :confused:

I agree with you. It has the same meaning as "possible seborrheic keratosis".

Provider is not 100% certain.

Thanks, my thoughts exactly! I just need to convince the provider without "offending" them.
