Thread: documentation for 28190

    Default documentation for 28190

    Someone in our office has heard at a conference that you use 28190 for any removal of foregin boby of the foot. Even if the provider did not make an incision. But in the description it does states that the provider makes an incision. Just wondering what others have heard or doing in the office.

    I wouldnt use this code unless an incision is made. There are a couple other codes you can use for the superficial foreign body removals.

    Would you happen to know the codes or code range of them, that don't require an incision?
