Abscess cpt coding question

  1. Default Abscess cpt coding question
    Medical Coding Books
    I have a patient that came in for an incision and drainage of an abscess. The next day they came back and a revision was performed on the abscess then it was sutured again. Can we bill for the second day, if so what procedure code should we use?

    Thank you
