I know that simple repairs are included with lesion excisions, but what about Mohs surgery?
Although simple repairs are included (bundled) into almost all integumentary codes, no repair is bundled into Mohs per the NCCI and CPT. The CPT guidelines for Mohs state that if a repair is performed, you can use separate repair, flap or graft codes to report. You can report simple repairs (12001-12018) along with Mohs codes (17311-17315).
