What code would best describe "Pre-op Meds" ?
example: Patient came in today for meds as directed by provider, meds need to be taken a week before surgery and throughout recovery (knee surgery). And this is how it was coded with V45.89, is this ok to use for this situation? or is there a more appropriate code?
please help
:eek:

Pre-Op Meds??

The surgeon could use it if you are in the global period and know there is no reimbursement coming. The problem is that most payors will see that as bundled and not want to pay any provider, even the Primary care doc, if that is all they address.
