CPT© Skin Procedures 2016: Part 2 Wounds and Debridement

Sometimes coding procedures on the integumentary system in CPT© really gets under your skin! But once we realize that our questions are usually “only skin deep” and that a new perspective can make coding skin procedures in CPT© less difficult, we can basque in the light of confidence.

In CPT© Coding Skin Procedures 2016 (Part 2) , we’ll go deeper than the skin as we discover how to report debridement and wound management procedures using CPT codes. The discussion will include:

  • Excisional versus non excisional debridement.
  • When to report debridement performed at the same time as other procedures/services (i.e. fractures and E/M’s).
  • The difference in active wound management versus debridement CPT codes.
  • When to report escharotomy codes.
  • Current coding and coverage issues related to debridement and wound management procedures.
  • Documentation best practices to support medical necessity (let’s talk ICD-10-CM).

and more.
