Hello, I am reviewing a laceration repair. Please let me get your thoughts on the below procedure. 13152,13153,12011-51?


Lacerations: complex lacerations of left lower lip (7 cm) and left upper lip (6 cm), both involving vermilion border; simple laceration of nasal bridge laceration (1cm)


Thank you in advance,

Kari

Were the lacerations of the lip through the full thickness of the lips? If so, look to code 40652 or 40654. There is a November 2016 CPT Assistant article that provides some information on coding for lacerations of the lip.

I hope that helps.
