My doc did an excision of a probable ganglion cyst from the right ring finger. He wants me to use code 26160 for the excision and 12041 for a closure code. Isn't the closure bundled in with the 26160? Correct me if I am wrong.

Also are there any websites/links out there that make it easy to search for LCDs and codes that will be bundled together? I have used CMS.gov in the past, but when I searched an LCD for the 26160 code it came up with nothing. Not sure if I am going about the search wrong or what?

Thanks!
