    Smile candida antigen

    AAPC: Back to School
    My dermatologist is using candida antigen for wart destruction.Previously, I used code 17110 for destruction of warts. I think that i should billed cpt code 11900 with add on j3490.

    Default J3490

    Can you bill J3490 when candida is not a drug? It also isn't FDA approved....I was leaning toward the wart destruction code 17110 because it states by any method.

    Default Candida

    Candida injections need be reported with 11900 and J3490.
