Default Medical code for billing

Another question- my insurance asked me to get the medical codes in order to check if they'd cover the procedure on my pws.

The doc I'd be going to gave me a code for laser treatment, and a code that I believe relates to hemangiomas. I thought pws were different than hemangiomas, does anyone know what the correct coding for a pws is?
Is it lumped under hemangiomas or should I get a different code?

Both pws and hemangioma are vascular birthmarks, so they might be lumped in with the same code (laser treatment for vascular lesions).

Again, remember to ask Basia about that!!
