Thread: Modifier 25 w/Excision Code

    Default Modifier 25 w/Excision Code

    AAPC: Back to School
    If a patient comes for "evaluation of a large somewhat inflamed sebaceous cyst of his left back." My physician does a history, examined and decides that it does need to be excised. Then also dictated the excision.

    Can I charge a e/m with modifier 25 along with the excision code of 11406?
