Thread: Acne Rosacea

    Default Acne Rosacea

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am new to Dermatology. My doctor uses laser for the treatment of rosacea. He seems to think that this is covered by insurance and is not cosmetic. All of the information I find is to the contrary. Can anyone shed some light on this? What CPT should I use? That is the biggest question. I want to use 17999. I also want to use this code for tattoo removal, hair removal, everything that does not have it's own code (psoriasis, port wine etc)?

    The codes for port wine stain removal are 17106-17108.
