What is the correct coding for destruction of Vulvar lesions? Do you code CPT 56501 or code an applicable E & M?

I would use 56501, unless the provider indicated in their documentation that it was extensive, in which case I would use 56515. I wouldn't necessarily bill an E/M unless the documentation that made it separately identifiable from the procedure.
