Injection code - finding a cpt code

  1. Red face Injection code - finding a cpt code
    Medical Coding Books
    I need help finding a cpt code for an injection done in a scar w/neuritis or is there such a code?

  2. #2
    CPT codes 11900-11901 are for injections into skin lesions which include any healed skin lesions (ex: post laceration and post surgical scars).
    My doctors use this code if we are injecting meds into acne scars.
    I hope this helps
