VersaJet debridement


Best answers

Does anyone know what to code for VersaJet debridement for burns? I was told to always code for excision (15002- 15005) because it is concidered a surgical instrument, however I am concered because the operative report specifically states that the burn wound was debrided with a VersaJet down to healthy appearing tissue. No skin graft was placed. Could someone help me out? Thanks!
