Wound Vac/Negative Pressure Therapy post op period still in house


Best answers
Hello Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone could offer any guidance please. I have a Dr. that did 2 debridements on a pt that is in house.
On their rounding days they are applying a would vac/Negative pressure therapy. I was under the impression that this
would get bundled into the 90 day global. I know that the Hospital (PT Department) can charge for it but the Dr. is wanting
to charge for it. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated!
