    Exclamation milium extraction

    AAPC: Back to School
    Would the CPT code for Extraction of 1 Milium be 10040 and would the ICD9 code be 706.2? I would try to search for this on the forum but the search tool doesn't work for me.
    Thank you!!

    Yep, those are both correct.
    706.2 is for other/specified location, so if it is on the breast, eyelid, genital organ, or vulva it would have a more specific code.
