Minden, LA
Best answers
Had a pt who came in for e/m and had a removal same day. This pt came back the next day, within the 10 day global, and had an antibiotic inj and xray with this same dx. Can i bill this next day inj and xray? Thanks for your help. !!

Diagnostic tests and xrays are separate and billable during the global period so you can definitely bill for the xrays. If the injection was given due to a complication of the procedure than it is part of the global period. Hope that is helpful!
