ICD-9-CM Procedure 86.22

    I recently read an article in the Coding Edge regarding proper coding for excisional wound debridement. This is a code from ICD-9 procedures. I've never used this code - does Medicare NH a accept this code and do other insurance companies? I usually use codes 11000-11044 for excisional debridements. Thanks.

    86.22 is the icd-9 procedure code for the debridement. You would not use this code unless you were coding the facility side. The CPT code that you have is correct. Just remember that ICD-9 procedure codes are DX codes, not CPT codes.

    Vol 3 ICD-9 codes are most definitely NOT dx codes! They are procedure codes for inpatient procedures. The dx code comes from Vol 1 and 2 of the ICD-9 whether you are facility or physician.
