Wound Care: Debridement and Skin Substitute Application
The physician documented debridement (11043x1 & 11046x4) of a wound 85.25sqcm and documented 20sqcm of skin substitute application (15271). My coder says that 11043/11046 is included in 15271 and we can't separately bill for them with 15271. Do we bill 15271 as the size of the debridement documented or only the size of the skin substitute?
