Thread: Coding 5-FU injection for Keloid Scar

    Exclamation Coding 5-FU injection for Keloid Scar

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi there,

    Need help coding for injection of 5-FU for a keloid scar on chest. I found J9190 but is there any other CPT code and if so what modifiers do I use.

    Thanks...I haven't run into this one before.

    Default Cpt 11900

    Have you looked at CPT 11900

    Isn't it supposed to be 96405 when injecting lesions with 5fu?

    JesseL is correct. You bill 96405 (intralesional chemotherapy injection, first 7) with J9190. Be careful not to bill for more than one unit of J9190, because the amount injected even into multiple lesions is miniscule.
