Good Morning Coding world,


With the new guidelines regarding debridements...If a 43 debridement was perfomed on a pressure ulcer and a tramua wound, would I have to list all dx codes for the 43 or the one with greater depth??? In one session a clinican can do multiple 43 for different wounds would I list every wound DX for one procedure??? In the LCD that limited 5 debridement per visit, how could this be if the codes are now according to the depth????
