Wound care billing and coding guidelines
Wound care services are performed to remove devitalized and necrotic tissue to increase healing of the wound skin. The doctor files the claim in the insurance company when a serious cleaning of the wound is required before dressing.
We have to follow debridement for the removal of foreign particles in the wound.
Active wound care, performed with minimal anesthesia is billed with either CPT code 97597 or 97598.
