    Default Help with CPT 19300

    AAPC: Back to School
    When we code 19300 for gynecomastia for a man, insurances always denie it for cosmetic purposes. What CPT do you guys use if a surgeon does a mastectomy for gynecomoastia? Would you use 19120????

    If they state gynecomastia you have no choice but to use 19300. When our doctor states removal of a breast mass from a male then we use 19120.
    I base the code in this type of case on the diagnosis I am given.
    And yes we too get denials when it is gynecomastia with no pain.
