Jackson Pratt Drain - Is there a CPT Code

  1. Default Jackson Pratt Drain - Is there a CPT Code

    Is there a CPT Code for insertion of Jackson Pratt drain?

  2. Default JP drain
    Usually the insertion of the drain at the surgical site is considered to be an integral part of the procedure and thus not separately reportable. Per general surgery.
