placement of more than 1 seton

    Exam Training Packages
    The code states seton, not seton(s) so I don't see why not. I guess you would add a 59.

  2. #2
    Good morning, all. I'm in need of assistance. I have a provider who replaced a seton. The provider coded a 46030(removal of seton) and 46020(placement of seton) is this appropriate?

  3. #3
    Default Seton replacement
    Is 46030 in addition to 46020 an appropriate combo?
