What is the code for an new patient outpatient visit code when done in an Ambulatory Surgery Center? I used 99202, but the payer is telling me the place of service, 24 is invalid.
Thank you in advance

ASC Facility

Usually when you go into an ASC facility you are scheduled for surgery, The E/M is usually done with their doctor before they go to the ASC facility.

Did the doctor do a full E/M on this patient before going into sugery? they may also be considering it as a pre-op. I would need a little more info to determine denial reason.

What kind of surgery was performed? Major, minor?
