What CPT code should be used for tick removal? :confused: 10120 clearly says incision and subQ tissue.

I tried indexing removal / foreign body but don't find thorax or trunk.

Should tick removal not involving an incision always be part of the E/M code?

TIA

That's correct, the removal of foreign body from the skin without incision is considered a part of the E/M service.
