Is an Evaluation and Management service billable on the same day of a diagnostic lumbar puncture done to the same patient,same date of service and by the same physician?

Evaluation and Management service is considered included in the global day of diagnostic lumbar puncture procedure. You should not bill it on same patient,same date of service and by the same physician. But if your E/M support separate identifiable services, you can bill it with -25 modifier.
