wound vac

Kimberly Posted Tue 10th of March, 2015 11:50:53 AM

When the doctor changes a wound vac in hospital and does a washout as well can you bill for that procedure and what code would be used. Also is there a code for removing the wound vac?

Hi,

Change of Wound Vac procedures are usually included with-in global days of original procedure and if it is out of this period, then removing is considered a part of E/M service.

Thanks.
