IF YOUR PHYSICIAN PERFORMS THIS PROCEDURE

40801-Drainage of abscess, cyst, hematoma, vestibule of mouth; complicated


THEN CRYO'S THE AREA AFTER WORDS. CAN YOU ADD ALSO A 17110 TO THIS SERVICE ALSO WITH MODIFIER 59.


QUESTION CAME UP CUZ I CHECK ON MY CODEITRIGHT ONLINE AND THE PROCEDURE FOR CPT 40801 HAS NO EXCLUSION FOR CPT 17110 IN THE CCI EDITS. SO DOES THAT MEAN I CAN CODE THE CRYO WITH THIS CODE.

MY INSTINCT IS TO SAY THAT THE CRYO APPLIED IS INCLUED IN THE CPT 40801.

WHAT DO YOU THINK.
