One of my MOHS surgeons was wondering about the use of 67810 for biopsy of an eyelid vs the 11100. I have been researching this and came up with conflicting information. The coder ref guide under 67810 just says a small amount of tissue is excised. Some references say the 67810 is for lid margin, tarsal plate or paplerbral conjunctive which that may not include the skin if done via shave. But then...if the biopsy is a punch of the eyelid, wouldnt that qualify for the 67810.
