Ask a Rev Cycle Expert: CPT® 11042 Vs. 97597?
My question is in regard to debriding hypergranulation tissue. There is some confusion as to which CPT® code we should be using for a debridement of hypergranular tissue. My provider feels if there wasn't much hypergranular tissue removed in debridement that I should not bill CPT® 11042; he feels I should code 97597 instead. If we could please get your guidance on which code to use.
