Removal of pack

Cindy Posted Tue 17th of May, 2011 18:01:14 PM

One physician packed the ear after surgery. Another physician removed the packing in the OR. Can that be billed?

Check the global period of the first surgery after which the physician packed the ear. Also check if the removal of packing if associated with any other ear complaints or not.
