Callus shave


Pittsburgh Central Pennsylvania
Best answers
Can codes 11055-11057 be used for billing a shaving of a callus? The procedure note states callus shaved with #10 scalpel. I am thinking that a shave of a callus is included in the E&M code and 11055-11057 should NOT be used since the procedure was a shaving and not paring or cutting. Any thoughts or suggestions?
