    Default Gelfoam used in Urgent Care

    Patient comes in with part of great toe amputated. They clean the wound, use gelfoam, and dress the wound. Can we code the gelfoam?

    Thanks!

    I think gelfoam is included in the procedure hence no need to charge separately

    The gelfoam is part of the procedure so you cant' code it separtely.
