Title: CPT code for dressing change after injuries.
Post by: elenashvartsman on September 30, 2009, 08:28:06 AM
What CPT code would be proper to bill for dressing change after injuries. I found CPT code 16020- but it is only referes to dressing change for a serious burn, can I use this code for dressing change after any kind of injuries? Thank you. Elena

Dressing changes are usually coded as a low level E&M visit, 99211.
