    My physician wants to bill a 99024 for a post op visit and do a counseling and coordilnation of care with a 24 modifier for the second part of the visit on the same day. He is discussing future treatments, options, community support services. Can he bill a 99204 and a 99213 with a 24 modifier for the two visits. He knows he can double dip on the time element (that the 99213 has to be completely supported by separate documentation).

    Hi,

    Post operative visit during the global period for the same problem is not a paid service. Any E&M code billed will not get reimbursed. Any visit during the global period for a unrelated service should be billed with appropriate E&M code with 24 modifier.

    Hope the provided information would be helpful.
