    Question Wart removal help PLEASE!!!!!!!!

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am in need of massive help. AMA changed the destruction of warts from 17000 series to 17110 and 17111. The old codes had a 10 post op period. For the life of me, I cannot find out if the new codes have a post op period. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks.

    Default Wart Rebomval

    It still has a 10 day global period. Sorry about the spelling of removal. My editor on my system I use says 10 days.

    You can find the Medicare database at http://www.cms.hhs.gov/PhysicianFeeS...FSRVF/list.asp
    It is updated quarterly and can be saved on your desktop for quick reference.
