Primary Care Dermatology Coding: This presentation is directed at Family Practice/Internal Medicine practices that choose to do simple skin procedures in the ambulatory setting. Often the primary care provider is the first point of access for common dermatology problems, and skin procedures provide a satisfying respite from the cognitive exercise that comprises a typical day in the life of a primary care provider. In some areas, lead times for appointments to dermatology consultants is considerable and providing these services in the primary care office is a great service to the patient. Providers will review the basics of minor skin procedures, and learn the documentation that will support appropriate coding. Coders will become learn the anatomy of the integumentary system, and review coding associated with common simple skin procedures.
