    Default Lipoma Removal

    AAPC: Back to School
    Total of 3 Lipoma's removed from the forearm, each. 11403x1, 11403x2 mod 59. Dr. thinks it should be some other code, but I don't agree, just need other suggestions. DX used 214.9

    If the lipoma was beneath the subQ you should be coding from the musculoskeletal section.
