According to Codes for Podiatric Medicine, when billing 11721 you need to have 110.1 or a few other nail codes in the primary position and when billing 11055 you must have 700 as the primary diagnosis. My questions is how are you going to bill both procedure codes on the same claim? Thanks all for any input.

According to Codes for Podiatric Medicine by Martin Taubman DPM, when billing 11721 diagnosis code 110.1 needs to be the primary dx. When billing 11055 dx code 700 needs to be the primary diagnosis. My question is how are you going to bill both procedure codes on the same claim for the same date of service?
I am posting on this site because I can't seem to find a blog or site that assists the office staff of a DPM. Thanks all.
On the claim itself, you would show your office visit with both codes and any other. When you code the 11721 code you would use only the diag code of 110.0 only. Next line entry would show the procedure code 11055 with only the diag code of 700 in first position. Do not forget to use your modifiers. One line item for each procedure with appropriate codes. L.A.
