    as far as I know you cannot code the placement of the initial wound vac with the I&D code. I think it is bundled into the I&D code. What code are you using for the I&D.

    For example with code 23930 included in the global is the application of initial dressing. in which the wound vac would be considered the dressing.

    Hope that helps.
