    Question Treatment for psoriasis
    Exam Training Packages
    Help!! One of my docs is coding 96405, J3301, J9250 for psoriasis. Does anyone else do this? Is this right?

    I checked the index of the CPT under psoriasis treatment. Its 96910 thru 96922 also has a note- See Dermatology; Photochemotherapy which gives 96910 - 96913. The code he is using is intralesional chemotherapy. It doesnt seem correct.

    Thanks for the input. I finally got the bright idea to check CPT assistant archives and found some info that actually supports his use of this code. Incredible! I didn't think he was coding it right but apparently I have learned from him!

    This is off the subject of this thread, but to check CPT assistant archives, is this something you have to purchase or is there a link to view them.

    Thanks
