If the patient has Medicare, you will need to add an additional diagnosis as Medicare will not pay for 706.2 by itself. If the doctor dictates all eight were in different locations on the scalp, you can bill the correct CPT® codes by adding -59 modifier onto them.

Is he excising the cyst or draining the cyst? Which CPT® are you planning on reporting?

re: excision of sebaceous cysts on scalp

Have you looked at code 10061 for incision and drainage of multiple cysts?
