New lung biopsy code 32408

Date: Mar 15, 2021

Question:

Recently at an AMA seminar they stated that with 32408 (lung biopsy) you can code this more than once when more than one lesion is biopsied of the lung. I am not seeing that in the description. Do you agree if they biopsy two  or more different lesions in the same lung that you can report code 32408 x 2 or more?
