The Insurance industry states: "Any time a layer of skin is destroyed by the physician or the physician goes within the realm of the body, the procedure is considered surgical."
Examples of such procedures include: Freezing with liquid nitrogen, scraping, excision, shave, topical application of chemicals (i.e., DNCB, Canthacur) and
injectable medications. If you have further questions about the description, please ask your physician or you may want to contact your insurance company.
