    Question mohs by 1 dr, sk removal diff dr,same day, same practice

    AAPC: Back to School
    How should I code the following:

    Pt came in the morning for a scheduled Moh's surgery with our Dr in the Moh's clinic. The same day the pt had an appointment with a different Dr in our general clinic and after the E/M the dr decided to remove some AKs.

    Both were scheduled appointments. The Moh's dr handles Moh's procedures and doesn't work in the general the clinic.

    How should this be coded ???? thank you!

    you should bill the MOHS under the dr's npi number that did it, And bill the other stuff under the other dr's npi number. Even if you have a group NPI there should still be a way to bill under the group and individual NPI. We have one DR and a bunch of NP and we will same day surgery and closures under there own NPI numbers hope this helps. LANDERSON
