Could someone answer this question pertaining to biopsies of the tongue? MD did 2 biopsies of tongue in close proximity. Apparently the CPT code of 41100 is used. The code describes as: Biopsy (singular) of tongue;anterior two-thirds. Can two biopsies be billed in this area using a 59 modifier? Thanks for your help.

Hi. Thanks for the response. I asked this AM and the biopsies were only done, no excisions of the area.
