Thread: Wound cpt code?

  1. #1

    Default Wound cpt code?

    I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a code for wound irrigation? One of the doctors cleaned out a wound with saline and I wasn't sure if you can only bill an e/m or if there's an additional procedure code that could be billed with the e/m. Thanks.

    Default E/M

    There is no code for this simple irrigation with saline. If you physician performed a wound repair you can code that. Otherwise, it's just part of the E/M.
