    Default V-Y flap

    Hi,

    I really doubt if we can code both the codes 14060 & 114xx together, as other later is inclusive with former.
    According to me it should be coded only with 14060/61

    Regards,
    Dr. Poonam

    Default Code ONLY for flap

    Read your guidelines for Adjacent Tissue Transfer or Rearrangement (CPT 2009 Professional edition, page 60). Excision of benign or malignant lesion is NOT separately reportable.
