Can anyone tell me if we are allowed to code for the closure of the 'decompression fasciotomy' incisions? (cpt 27600-27602)

if so, do i use the cpt codes under the 'repair (closure)' codes (12000-13000 series)

if it is bundled with the primary surgery, where can i find this information to show our surgeon?

Thanks so much for your help!

I will use the 13160 secondary closure code. I will always add a -58 since it is staged. I have not had any isssue with bundling.
Hope that helps
