    Question Wound Care: Dermagraft re-application
    Medical Coding Books
    Hello, (for physician billing) Am I allowed to bill for the re-application of a dermagraft since it is allowing up to 8 re-applications? Or is the re-application reimbusement included in the primary application? Dermagrafts have 90 global days...I guess that is why I am confused. Should I bill re-applications as 15365-58? I can't find anything to help on reapplication coding. Does this also apply to Apligrafts? I am aware of the G0440 code but this is for a Medicaid pt.
    Thanks for any feedback!
