    Does anyone know the cpt code to use for destruction of a wart using a CUSA machine? I think it's radiofrequency removal, but I'm not sure. Thanks!

    I looked up some information on the CUSA machine, but could you provide the physicians procedure note? It may help to determine what code should be used.

    If they haven't actually done it yet, can they give you a description of how the machine is used to remove the wart? How does the machine actually work? Does it destroy the wart or does it excise the wart?
