    Default Spider Angioma

    How do you code for treating a spider angioma with a laser? I'm vacillating between 17106 and 17110. I appreciate any help. Thanks!

    I believe we use 17106

    ...though i just found this

    Is it appropriate to bill CPT codes 17106 through 17108 when using lasers to treat diagnosis code 448.1 (Telangiectasia)?

    No, spider veins are not vascular proliferative lesions. Generally, the treatment of spider veins, etc., is cosmetic, and therefore is not a covered service by Medicare or many other carriers. If the treatment is medically necessary, you could use CPT codes 17110-17111.
