Anyone have any advice how to code an ulcer documented as "Neuropathic Ulcer"? The note also states that the patient isn't diabetic. I code for Wound Care. I already know which L97.___ code to use. But, it is my understanding that the L97 codes aren't to be billed as primary. There must be a primary. In this case, it may be a lack of documentation on the provider. I don't know the cause of the neuropathy. But, when billing for the debridements the G62.9 and G90.09 aren't listed on the LCD. Anyone have any ideas?
