Hi,
CPT Code for Soft Tissue Abscess; Superficial
Patient presents for evaluation of 2 abscesses: 1 to R abdomen, 1 to L back.
Incision and drainage indicated for cutaneous abscess, both Abdomen and Back.
but the abscess of back is Incision, Soft Tissue Abscess; Superficial.
2000 is already deleted from CPT and simple abscess as 10060, which one would be second cpt code and the modifier used for Outpatient?
if anybody knows the answer it really helps.
Thanks
Rashmi
