Nail Biopsy

April 27, 2017

When performing a nail biopsy do we use CPT 11100?

For a nail biopsy the correct CPT code is 11755-Biopsy of nail unit (e.g., plate, bed, matrix, hyponychium, proximal and lateral nail folds). You would not report 11100 as this is a biopsy of the skin.

*This response is based on the best information available as of 04/27/17.
