Good Afternoon Coding world,

I finally understand how to code the debridement procedures for 2011. My concern would be the ICD9 codes, since we are allowed to only bill the same depth and level of tissue removed how would the icd-9 list

eg: Doctor documents
11043 707.04 707.24
11043 707.04 707.23
11043 890.1

this would be billed with one cpt code 11043 and if over 20 sqcm 11046 for additonal, the issue I have is what would be the ICD 9 associated with the procedure???would I list all ICD9??? if there are over 8 debridemts performed with the same debridement level how ould the billing sytem handle this????
