I have a patient that was transferred to another facility OOT due to having severe pre-eclampsia and delivered at 32 weeks by C-section. The patient then came back to our office for her C-section check. Not her postpartum visit, that she will come back for in another 3-4 weeks. How do I bill the C-section check? Doctor is really just checking incision to make sure it is healing ok. Can anything be billed?

Wouldnt it still be part of her global period?

I would agree that you can bill an e/m code since your doc did not do the delivery, therefore, the global billing does not apply. You will also be able to bill the postpartum visit when she comes back.
