    Default Bone lesion excison

    AAPC: Back to School
    2 bone lesions are removed the right tibia with allograft reconstruction; one

    proximal and one distal with 2 separate incisions.

    1) Can I bill 27645 x 2?

    2) Can I charge for the allograft reconstruction?

    Does the opnote say "radical" or do you know that the Dx is malignant? For benign you could look at 27638.
