CPT 10060 Global Period

Amanda Posted Mon 21st of February, 2011 15:08:07 PM

Can anyone tell me what the global time period is for CPT 10060? Our office performed the I&D on the 15th and had a follow-up on the 23rd which is being recouped due to falling within the global period of the I&D. Thanks!

Global period for cpt 10060 is 10 days. So, the denial is obvious. You can bill the this visit(must be an E/M) with a modifier 24 if it is unrelated to cpt 10060. Otherwise, it is really a follow-up, then will not be reimbursed for being in the global period.
