The patient went to ER the next day for bleeding. Can control of bleed be billed the next day or is it global? If it's global, how long is the global period? Different physician in the same group performed the control of bleed. Thanks

If the doctor had noticed during the original procedure that there was bleeding due to the scope or the procedure at the polyp site then you wouldn't bill the control of bleed. But since the patient was discharged and then returned you would bill the control of bleed as it is done at a seperate occurence.
HOPE THIS HELPS!
