Physcian did an excision of breast mass greater than 5 cm but also stated had to do a complex dual-layer closure in addition of the mass being 9 to 10 cm. also had to use a Penrose drain. Can I code the complex closure with 19120 ?

You cannot bill for the complex closure seperately along with 19120 as it is global to the surgical package.
