    Anyone has an idea how to code drains? Hemovac Drains... Subgaleal drains, Subdural drains? I do neurology coding, however there is no neurology section on this forum. Any input would be a great help.

    I can't help you, but try They have a free listserv for several specialties. They have one for Neuro. You can try asking for help there. Always good to have multiple resources.
