Advance tissue Rearrangement

I would appreciate any thoughts on question below.

A physician wants to perform lesion removals and perform adjacent tissue rearrangement.
I am aware documentation must support 2 separate incisions/defects.

My question is, can ATR be billed for lesions under 1cm? Is there a "minimal" requirement?

I have research this and can not find anything. Some of these are lesions of .5cm and less.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Depends on the location

Yes there are CPT codes for reporting less than .5cm. For example CPT code 14000 is used to report Adjacent tissue transfer or rearrangement of the trunk, reporting 10 sq cm or less. Look up the location and you should find ther are codes for reporting 10 sq cm or less, you just need to code the correct location.
