If I am reading this right, the patient is only coming back for draining and changing of the dressing, and no other I&D is being performed on the follow-up visits. If this is correct then I would think only the 99024 should be coded and then it wouldn't get billed to the insurance company. We see a lot of I&D in our office and that is what we do.
Hope this helps
