Wiki Cpt 62362


Best answers
I am new to pain coding and our doc wants to bill for inpatient follow-up after the 62362 which they performed and billed for. I believe the f/u visits should be global as 62362 has a 90 day global. They want to bill 99231s for 6 days worth of work. Any suggestions?

The CPT code 62362 Implantation or replacement of device for intrathecal or epidural drug infusion; programmable pump, including preparation of pump, with or without programming carries a 90 day global period that includes all normal post-operative care, including postoperative hospital visits....99231 - 99233 not separately billable for standard post op care in a surgical global period.
