Bovie burn

    Does anyone know the correct CPT code(s) for an accidental Bovie burn during a procedure (masectomy)??

    Do you mean the ICD-9 for the burn? I would use the correct burn code and probably E876.8.

    Otherwise I'm not sure what CPT code you would be looking for.

    NO, the CPT code if there was any.....but thanks for the ICD-9 code though!

    I'm confused, you want to charge them for burning them on accident? Or am I missing something?
