    Question code suggestions?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Patient is comming into the hospital for an exploration of an old c-section wound and excision of a lump from the abdominal wall. The insurance wants the codes for authorization. Any suggestions?

    Do you know if the "lump" is an adhesion?

    In the Dr's notes he says possible endometrioma.

    Take a look at these codes with your physician. One of them may work for the prior authorization depending on the size, etc.
    22900 - Excision, tumor, soft tissue of abdominal wall, subfascial (eg, intramuscular); less than 5 cm Active
    22901 - Excision, tumor, soft tissue of abdominal wall, subfascial (eg, intramuscular); 5 cm or greater Active
    22902 - Excision, tumor, soft tissue of abdominal wall, subcutaneous; less than 3 cm Active
    22903 - Excision, tumor, soft tissue of abdominal wall, subcutaneous; 3 cm or greater
