    Question Excision cpt 11400
    Medical Coding Books
    Does anyone know if it is allowable for a PA to perfom a excision? If not where would I find the documentation to state this?

    Thanks,
    Molly M

    Depending on your states scope of practice....

    Examples of the types of services that PAs may provide include services that traditionally have been reserved to physicians, such as physical examinations, minor surgery, setting casts for simple fractures, interpreting x-rays, and other activities that involve an independent evaluation or treatment of the patient's condition.
