    Default 46607 billed with 46615?
    New Call-to-action
    Hi, everyone!

    I'm reviewing our daily anoscopy charts, and I've never come across this scenario before. Patient presents for HRA with biopsy (46607) and has incidental warts removed from the anus with electrodessication. Provider coded the visit as 46607 and 46615. I'm assuming the 46615 was because of the electrodessication, but I don't feel it's an actual ablation of tumors, but just wart destruction. My gut says the visit should be 46607 (1 biopsy), and 17110-59 for the wart destruction.

    What are your thoughts?

    46607 is a column 2 code for 46615. I would bill 46910 (destruction of lesions, anus...electrodesiccation) and 46607 HRA, in that order. Hope this helps!
