    In our office we use the chief complaint of "history of non melanoma skin cancer"
    We discuss their past skin cancer in the HPI and PE. We bill and E&M of V10.83. We will use this dx every 3-6 months when the patient returns for their screening.

    I would use V76.43 screening for malignant neoplasm of skin.
    I would also use V10.83 history of non-menaloma skin cancer.
