Foreign Body Removal
Our patient presented to the office for a tick bite, she removed part of the tick herself, however a portion of the tick remained.
The Provider indicates he used a Shave Biopsy Technique and the portion he removed was sent to the Lab for identification; identified as a Deer Tick.
Can he code for both Shave Biopsy and Foreign Body Removal?
