Is it appropriate to charge a 1200X for application of Gelfoam to a laceration? Is this considered a tissue adhesive as listed by the CPT book?

Thanks!!!! :confused:

hi

gelfoam is intended for application to bleeding surfaces as a hemostatic.

i am also not sure that for this if we can code a repair code from 1200x

my perception says,
that for this kind of situation no need to code procedure it should be paired with EnM level........... cause if doctor is using gelfoam than the wound is very minor so no need repair code...

Hope it helps ..
