    Default Plantar warts injection

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am wondering if anyone has billed for plantar wart injection with Candin? I have a couple different opinions re: the CPT code that should be billed: 11900 or 17110. ( I know the Candin is an unlisted HCPCS). I would appreciate any opinions you may have. Thanks.

    I use the code 17110 because it says physicians uses a laser, electrosurgery, cryosurgery or chemical treatment to obliterate or vaporize benign lesions.

    Thanks for responding with your opinions. That is the code I had thought, but was getting different answers from others I had asked.
