I have a unique situation here. My provider removed a perineal abscess, which we billed 10060. The patient then was admitted to the hospital the next day and discharged 2 days later, for the same problem. We then did a TCM visit (all protocols were met), but Priority Health is rejecting, because it is within the global period of the initial procedure. Looking at the modifiers, I can't see one that applies to these circumstances. Does anyone know if there's a way to get this TCM visit covered or will I have to adjust it off? Thanks in advance.

The 10060 has a global period attached and unless it is something separate from the initial visit, any future claims will be rejected or denied.
