    What code set does everyone use for warts? 17000-17004 or 17110-17111? 17000-17004 states "premalignant lesions"; 17110-17111 states "benign lesions".

    17000 - 17004 is for premalignant lesions. I would use 17110 - 17111 depending on how many warts were removed. If you look in the back of you CPT book under warts, it leads you to 17111.
