    Default Mucocele of lip

    AAPC: Back to School
    Good Monday morning to everyone. I need a tie breaker. I have an excision of lower lip mucocele, How would you code it? the lesion was lifted and excised then cauterizeed and closed with catgut suture with a single stitch. I was looking at 40812. Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance,
    Darlene Britton
