Coding Incision and Drainage Procedures

Coding incision and drainage procedures can often be very frustrating! The key is to break down the procedure(s) into pieces.

Key tips to ask yourself while coding incision and drainage procedures:

  • Understand the INTENT of the procedure. What is the physician’s objective?
  • Ask yourself how many procedures are being completed. Is it only one or multiple procedures?
  • Locate the depth of the procedure. Did it stop at the skin, or did the procedure continue further to the muscle or the joint?
  • Ask yourself about the type of device that is being used. What is the device? What is the device’s purpose.
