We are confused on which code to use for a milia destruction, Is it 10040 or 17110?
For a milia destruction you would use 17110: CPT 17110 is specific to benign lesions other than skin tags or cutaneous vascular proliferative lesions. They include treatment of proliferative cutaneous vascular lesions, flat warts, molluscum contagiosum, or milia. Local anesthesia is included in these services.
