if a pt comes in to see a renal surgeon while in the global of having a AV Fistula put in, can you bill for the perma cath removal? what's in the surgical package for the insertion of a perma cath?

:confused:

Actually there is a 10 day global with a tunnelled cath. then there is a 90 day global on the creation of fistula. If the removal falls into either global I will bill with a 58 modifier it is implied that it is a staged procedure. Hope this helps.:)
