Intralesional Injections

January 5, 2017

Question:
Can I Report CPT 11900 x 1 and 11901 for each additional injections for multiple nodular lesions?

Answer:
No. CPT 11900 and 11901 are used to report number of lesions, not number of injections. You would report 11900 for up to and including 7 lesions and 11901 if there are more than 7 lesions. Make sure you document the type of lesions injected (cystic, nodular, keloid, psoriasis, acne, etc.) and location of each individual lesion. You may also separately bill for the medication using an appropriate J code.
