Remove broken drain tube
Can I bill for this and what CPT? The patient is 4 days out of TKA and when drain was being pulled a piece was broken off. Patient taken to OR to removal retained drain. 27086, 27087, or 20680 or 20670? Any ideas? Thank you,
Rebecca, Look at 27372 for the knee area.
You are right. I was in the wrong area. Thanks for your help.
