Does anyone use a 99211 for a foley removal if only the nurse sees the patient?

What about injections like testosterone where the patient brings his own meds? We currently bill 96372 but I wondered if anyone was billing 99211 instead.

We do the 99211, or mostly a 99024 for foley removals. Injections we do the 96372 and some plans want to see the J1071 billed with it, so that goes out with a penny as the billed amount.

So, I was under the impression that the 99024 can only be billed when the provider sees the patient as post op. Am I wrong? But the foley removals I'm talking about would be just a nurse visit after something like a TURBT which doesn't have a global.

If the foley removal is after any procedure with a global period, we do the 99024. Anything without a global - like a TURBT - we do the 99211.
