Thread: Code for Wound Vac

  1. #1

    Default Code for Wound Vac

    AAPC: Back to School
    How would you code a insertion or replacement of a wound vac due to a patient having a postop seroma after surgical repair of an incarcerated incisional hernia. Thanks.

    Take a look at 97605. (we personally don't have much success getting paid for this, but we code and bill anyway)

    Hope this helps
