the doctor wants to bill cpt 20926 & describes as the following,
the hematoma and deformity of the right cheek was addressed first obtaining 10cc of fat through a stab wound. The fat was carefully decanted and the dermal fat cells were obtained. These were immediately injected through multiple stab wounds into the deformity using an 18-gauge needle.
Is this correct? I've never billed for this code before & don't know if this documentation is enough to support coding this.
