In the CPT section guidance, it states "Surgical preparation may be reported only once per wound". I am coding 15002 at every Allograft application, of the same wound. The documentation is clear that the wound was debrided of residual graft tissue and stimulated granular tissue to optimize wound bed for application of allograft and promote granulation of tissue. Is the "once per wound" each time it's performed OR once per wound location?? I cannot find any further guidance on this and need clarification.

Code 15002 has an MUE of one. Only one per day would be allowed.
