Does anyone know if you removed a skin cancer ( 11606 ) on a patient how long before you can do another same procedure? Will Medicare deny for "not medically necessary?

There are no frequency limitation to the skin excision codes, to my knowledge. There is an MUE edit for a maximum of 2 of any one particular excision code per date of service, but this can be appealed if the documentation supports that a greater number were performed.
