WHAT IS EVERYONE USING FOR THE CPT CODES ON RE-EXCISIONS OF MELANOMA FOR MARGINS? IN THE PAST WE HAVE BEEN USING 88307 IF IT WAS A DEEP EXCISION WITH NO RESIDUAL TUMOR AND AN 88309 WHEN IT WAS A DEEP EXCISION WITH RESIDUAL TUMOR. WE HAVE NOW BEEN QUESTIONED ON WHETHER ALL SHOULD ACTUALLY BE 88305.
How is everyone else charging these? I guess the next question is what constitutes a deep excision?
