We have a patient who got extractions done by a different provider. We are doing the suture removal. We are aware that this is a non billable service. But, what is the most appropriate CDT non billable code to use in this case?
If the provider is not part of your practice/facility this is a billable charge, and would be done so using CDT code D9999. This code would also be appropriate as a non-billable code for a provider in the same practice/facility.
