English to English translations [PRO] Medical - Medical: Health Care / CPT code
English term or phrase:EXC H-F-NK-SP B9+MARG
What does the abbreviation H-F-NK-SP in this CPT code stand for?
CPTs are codes used for medical billing. Unfortunately, I don't have much context: this item appears along several other such codes (e.g. EXC TR-EXT B9+MARG, EXC TR-EXT MLG+MARG, and EXC FACE-MM MLG+MARG) in a HTML form.
These particular codes refer to the excision of skin lesions. I gathered that EXC is excision, B9 is benign, and MARG is the resection margin.
