this is a dumb question but patient comes into the facility for an ongoing dressing change after her surgery. Not sure if I should use v58.31 ir v58.30. she comes into the facility every other day for a dressing change.

Is the wound from the surgery? If so then I would be billing the V58.31. The V58.30 would be for other reasons such as an abscess, wound from a bite or other things like that. Hope that helps.
