Hi

Hi Anita,
The usage of mod 50 is for the mirror image of the first procedure, so wouldn't use the 41520 50 on the upper lip and under the tongue. The verdict is more on 41520 x2 and make sure the documentation support the codes.
Hope this helps.

Frenuloplasty????

Are you truly doing "frenuloplasty", labial and lingual??? or just "clipping" the labial and lingual frenulum?

Need to be specific.

I use 40799 for frenuloplasty of the lip.

Lip procedures and tongue procedures are listed in different areas of the Digestive System section of CPT.
