Well, in CPT 99024 the provider furnishes an E/M service to a patient for a condition or reason RELATED to a procedure during that procedure’s global period. The service is of the type the global period usually includes. The intent of the code is to allow providers to report a code for tracking purposes without billing for the service. And modifier 79 is for UNRELATED procedure or service", so in this case it cannot bill together. Hope it helps!
