:confused:

How would you bill this? This patient needed to go back to the OR for a evacuation of a hematoma after a mastectomy. She developed a large tense hematoma that was painful and causing local skin compromise. Doctor states incision reopened and the clot evacuated.......drain placed........wound reclosed in layers.

Thanks for the help.

I work for an ASC and I would code 10140 "Incision and drainage of hematoma, seroma or fluid collection"
