    Hi my name is Virginia Pujol and I am CDC certified. To answer your question, how was this applied? Was it done as smeared on as a destruction or was it done at interlesionals.

    It was put on as destruction. Its a gel and the doctor applied the gel to the warts.

    Ok, he did do it as a destruction. There is no HCPCS code for the podophyllin, If it is on the penis only you would code that as 54056 x 1 (up to 15) dx being 078.11. Other wise you would just code it as a regular destruction of 17110 x1 with dx of 078.11 . Hope this helps you.

    Also if it is female genitalia of the vuva only use 56501 x 1 (up to 15) or vaginal 57061 x 1 (up to 15). Same dx 078.11. These are all any method.
