    Default Apligraf and debridement

    AAPC: Back to School
    I know we can not bill site prep codes (15002-15005) at the same time as the graft codes, but what about a debridement code (11042)? If someone has experience with this, I would sure appreciate some advice.

    You cannot code for 11042 because the apligraf(Q4101), and debridement is part of 15002-15005 codes.
    Tip: makesure you pick up the supply used.
