cryosurgery and skin tag removal

  1. Question cryosurgery and skin tag removal
    Medical Coding Books
    I need help with this one. The provider did a cryosurgery and a removal of a seperate skin tag. I know I can't code 11200 with 17000 but not sure which way to go with this. Please help.

    Why not code both procedures with a 59 modifier to indicate it was a separate lesion & site.

  3. Default
    The 99213 has 25 on it so do I put the 59 modifier on 11200 or 17000 or both?
