Question Burn Coding


Best answers
Hi All,

I request some one to clarify my doubt below,

A patient with first degree of burn comes to hospital on the first day, and he receives the treatment and we have reported the ICD with 7th Chara as A and the CPT 16000

The same pt comes again to the same facility on the 2nd day or 3rd day, or with in one week for the same burn care, in this scenario how we will report ICD and CPTs. ?
We will add CPT as 16020, and what about ICD? 7th character as A or D??

Patient is still on active treatment ryt? so can we report 7th chara as A?

Expecting a clarification on This,

Thank You
