no Evaluation and Management codes can be pair with E&M modifiers only. 58 is not an appropriate E&M modifier. What was the rationale for wanting to use this modifer with your E&M?

no if it is truly a global you can not bill but if it is an e/m during a global that is legit u can use the 24 modifier. 58 is only for proceedures, etc.
