    Default Anal Colposcopy with biopsy

    AAPC: Back to School
    If an anal colposcopy with biospy is performed do you bill 56821 (vulvar colposcopy w/biopsy) or just 11100 (biopsy of skin)?

    A colposcope is used to visualize the vulva, vagina and cervix, not the anus. For the anus, you would use the anascope codes; anoscopy with biopsy is 46606.
