Hi everyone! Wondering if I could help coding the following as Medicare
has been denying. How do I code for Destruction of 4 lesions Actinic
Keratosis? Thought that it was 17000 then 17003-59 17003-59 17003-59 and
17003-59 They are all different anatomical locations. Any help would be appreciated Thank you

No Modifiers

When you code out for destruction you do not need the modifiers. Those codes are primary and secondary, so if you had 4 aks is should look like this,,, 17000 X 1 unit 17003 X3 units.
