Coding eyelid lesions

Coding eyelid lesions

Question: When do I use CPT 67840 as compared to an 11000-series of codes or integumentary system code when excising a lid lesion?

Answer: The 67000-series of codes are explicitly "codes for removal of lesion including more than skin (i.e., involving lid margin, tarsus, and/or palpebral conjunctiva)."

Use the 11000-series and 17000-series for the removal of lesions involving mainly just the skin of the eyelid.
