    Default CPT codes 17250 and 11041 being billed together

    hello, I am trying to find out if cpt codes 11041 and 17250 can be billed together and how often? the 17250 keeps coming back as bundled but per cci.com it is not bundled with a modifier and there is no global. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    11041 and 17250 are bundled. The only way to "unbundle" is if they are different diagnoses. If it is the same site I would use 17250 because it pays more.

    CPT 2009 Professional edition, page 70 has the following parenthetical remark immediately below 17250:
    (17250 is not to be used with removal or excision codes for the same lesion.)
