Urology/E& M coding

I have a Dr. that is putting in subsequent visits at a hospital following Ambulatory surgery. Can he do this? The patient is again marked Ambulatory Surgery at a hospital, and a different Dr. from the same group, wants to charge subsequent visits following the surgery even though it is not inpatient. The surgery does not have a global period. Would appreciate your input. Thanks

Thanks for your question.

Yes, your physician can provide subsequent visits if the patient is admitted to the hospital. If the patient is not an inpatient, and surgery doesn't have a global period and subsequent services is not bundling then you can bill for outpatient service.

Hope it helps.

Thanks!
