Frontal cranial scar wound revision with debridement

Deborah h Posted Thu 02nd of April, 2015 11:49:35 AM

What cpt code(s) would be used to code for a frontal cranial scar wound revision with debridement?

SuperCoder Answered Fri 03rd of April, 2015 03:22:31 AM

Use CPT code range 11420 - 11426 depending on the size of the scar. Also, bill repair code (intermediate repair) 12031 - 12037 range depending on the closure size.
If complex repair was performed, then use the complex repair code (13120 - 13122 series) alone. The definition of complex repair includes scar revision. Excision code is not reported in this case.
