    Can 11730 (Avulsion of nail plate. . .) be billed together with 11750 (Excision of nail. . .)?

    Default 11730 vs 11750

    My understanding is if its the same nail,

    No. 11730 involves nail plate, only and 11750 includes nail plate and matrix with it. Per Procedure Coders Desk Reference 2008 Definations
