have a situation where our patients come in for wound care, dressing changes on any and all types of wounds. I have been told that I cannot use 97602 for these types of encounters because these codes are only for services provided by Physical/Occupational Therapists. I have been told that these should be coded with an E/M code; but only wound assesment and dressing changes are happening.

Is this accurate information I am receiving? :confused:
