3 warts. One on trunk 8 cm needs intermediate closure. Another on trunk 0.5 cm, simple, and one on the forearm 0.5 cm, simple.

Codes
11406 with 12304
11400
11400

Where do I put the 59 modifier? Do I put it on the two 11400's or do I put it on the 12304. The encoder is giving me trouble because I have a 12304 with a 11400 and edits each 11400.

modifier 59

You would need to add the 59 modifier to just one of the 11400 codes so that you verify it is a seperate excision and not just a duplicate charge.
