This aricle reviews the codes and guidelines for these dermatologic procedures; Intralesional injections, photodynamic therapy, phototherapy, and laser treatments.
Intralesional injections deliver a medication directly into a specific skin lesion, allowing the medication to be delivered over a period of time. Corticosteroids are commonly injected.
Report either code 11900 for up to 7 lesions or code 11901, for eight or more lesions. They are never reported separately. 11901 is not an add on code. Report each for one unit, not the number of lesions.
