Can the ED charge for a separate facility level charge for a return visit to remove sutures as it is the same ED who placed them? Wouldn't the charge be considered bundled into the original laceration repair charge?

Yes, Removal of suture is included in the global period of the primary procedure and cannot be separately reimbursed. And if the removal of suture performed after the global period, it will be considered as a part of EM code.
