One of our docs wants to know why we are not billing for PCA follow-up during the patients hospital stay in a pediatric setting. We have always just billed a subsequent visit 99231-99233. It states on the CMS page that is is considered global on the day of surgery but what about the follow-up. If anyone can shed light on this it would be great:) :( :) > Help

What is he following up on....an epidural catheter or a Duromorph injection?
Epidurals are usually coded as 01996 for f/u days. Duromorph is usually coded 99231 for f/u days.
