I'm trying to find definitive guidance from CMS or in the Federal Regs that indicates a physician can bill for TCM services during the post op period as long as they are not the surgeon. I understand TCM would be covered by the global period for the surgeon. In this case, the patient's PCP is providing TCM services post-op and would like to bill for it. An article from the AAFP in 2013 mentions that this is allowed but I can't find anything directly from CMS that supports it and I would prefer direct supporting documentation. Thanks!
