Thread: procedure on sebaceous cyst

    Default procedure on sebaceous cyst

    The senerio...
    A procedure done on what was apparent to be a secaceous cyst on the scalp turned out not to be. Physian made an incision, probed about, did not find a cyst, but found some other boney type lesion that was not removed. Physician put in two stiches and is sending patient to specialist for definitive care. Please advise on how to code this. Would I bill an I&D 10060, or just the simple closure 12001?
    Thank You,
