I have a patient that had an I&D by a different provider, in fact a different health system all together. My doc saw this patient for repacking/dressing change. Anyone have a clue what CPT code I could use for this other than E/M?
Patient had I&D of Buttocks abscess done on 9/9/2020 and the below visit is from 9/14/2020. Same provider. The provider's question is: I could not find a procedure for repacking that did not include incision and drainage. The visit would be brief except for the packing.Please include a redacted note for review in order for assistance. Documentation is key. Typically, repacking/dressing change is billed with and E/M code; however, if wound care was performed than CPT codes 97597, 97598 may apply.
