Repairs with Mohs Surgery

Repairs with Mohs Surgery

February 15, 2018

Question:
I know that simple repairs are included with lesion excisions, but what about Mohs surgery?

Answer:
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).
