No, you cannot bill a subsequent visit. There is a one day global period for the heart cath. And any visits done on the same day as the cath would be included in this.:)

The only time we bill a subsequent on the same day as a cath is if the decision for the cath is made at that visit, then we add -25 to the visit, and bill the cath
