    Red face Need Help Please

    AAPC: Back to School
    The Pt Comes In And The Doctor Does Excision Of Furuncle Along With Sebaceous Cyst That Was Next To The Furuncle. He Want's To Use The I&d Code And Destruction Of Lesion Code.

    Example: 10060 I&d
    17000 Destruction Of A Lesion

    Dx 1. Fununcle
    2. Sebaceous Cyst

    In His Dictation He Does Not Mention He Did I&d, Only That He Did Excision Of Furuncle And Sebaceaus Cyst. He Also Used Em Level 3. If This Ok, Would You Use Modifier 51 Or 59 With 17000 Code. And I Know To Use Modifer 25 With Em Level.

    Thank You All In Advance

    I think we need to see the procedure / office visit note to give you an accurate response
