The 2001 Medicare National Level II Codes (HCPCS) has deleted G0169, wound debridement.  This code was added to the list of covered services for Idaho Medicaid participants effective July 1, 2000.  HCPC Code G0169 will be discontinued as a billable code effective May 31, 2001.   CPT code 97601 will replace the discontinued code.  You may bill either code until May 31, 2001.
