Thread: Placement of Jackson-Pratt Drainage

  1. #1

    Default Placement of Jackson-Pratt Drainage

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know if you can code seperately for this procedure? I see that several people have posted this before, but there hasn't been any answers to the question. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,

    I have always been told that you may not bill for the placement. Placing a drainage device in the operative field is included in the global package for any surgical procedure and not separately billable. Anyone else?

    Thank you Rebecca. That is what I figured since I couldn't find anything.
