Wound Care biling

  1. Default Wound Care biling
    Medical Coding Books
    The doctor in our office is now going into nursing home to bill for wound care. The codes I know for wound care are 97597 and 97598 are there any other wound care codes for nursing homes that I am missing.

    Depends on what kind of wound care is being done.

    If the wound care is not as extensive as that described in the wound care codes, then you would just bill the nursing home visit.
