Have there been changes to scar revision coding? CPT guidelines for 2020 no longer instruct you to use the complex repair codes for scar revision.

Thank you.
In a field where we are not supposed to make assumptions. Changes like this, with no explanation forces us to assume things are to be done the same way. UGH

Just found this on 3M Encoder, CPT Asst November 2019,

Coding Tip: To report scar revision, see the Skin, Subcutaneous, and Accessory Structures, Excision—Benign Lesion subsection codes (11400-11471).
