We wouldn't bill another I&D within the 10 day global of the same site.

?

I am wondering why would it be the complicated on the second day if the wound culture was taken on the first day? Wouldn't you use the 10061 on the first day?

Just asking?

For a single abscess, placing a drain or packing is required for 10061. A culture can be obtained by manually expressing the abscess - often without an incision.
