Thread: MOHS & adjacent tissue transfer

    Question MOHS & adjacent tissue transfer

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi everyone-hope someone can help!

    If our docotor does the MOHS surgery and also does the tissue transfer-14000- should the insurance company be applying modifier 51 to that transfer code and be paying us at a reduced rate because it is a multiple procedure?
    I think we should be getting 100% for both the MOHS CPT as well as the tissue transfer CPT.
    As always, thanks for the feedback. I'd be lost without these threads!!!

    The MOHS code is no longer exempt from the multiple procedure rule. The higher priced code would be paid at 100% and the next code would be reduced by 50%.
