CPT Codes

Effective January 1, 2015, Medicare created G-codes (G0456 and G0457) were replaced with two new Category I CPT® codes, 97607 and 97608 to report the application of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) using disposable non-durable medical equipment. This includes:

  • Provision of exudate management collection system;
  • Topical application(s);
