I'd show him the book - it's pretty clear about how to bill it...

11200 (billed one time) includes the removal of up to 15 skin tags, no matter where they are. You never report more than one unit of 11200 - that's why there's an add-on code (11201), for each additional 10 skin tags, beyond the first 15. Hope that helps! ;)
