Skin lesions: Can your documentation stand up to scrutiny? – Ophthalmology Management

We are often asked a simple question — whether removal of benign skin lesions is a covered service. The answer, alas, is complicated: “Sometimes.” This column will explain when the removal is a service covered by insurance and when it is not.

This article addresses the following questions:

  • Does Medicare cover removal of benign skin lesions?
  • When are these procedures covered?
  • What if we don’t know if the lesion is benign or malignant?
  • How should we proceed if the lesion is benign?
