    you may be able to use 12021; check the CPT description and see if it matches with your Doctor's documentation.

    Hope this helps.

    I agree with cpetrusan.

    I noticed that this (I think) is the 3rd time you've posted this question. The answer is the same each time...Do you agree with this code?

    Would you use the same CPT if the initial I&D was done in another office?

    For example: patient has I&D in hometown, but goes on Vacation and gets repacked at our office...
