New lung biopsy code 32408

Date: Mar 15, 2021


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?
