I have a patient that had a I&D done in the ER on 8/21. Since then she has come in 3 times to have the packing removed and repacked. How do I charge for this? its still within the global period but my DR didn't do the initial procedure.

Global covers only the performing surgeon

If you are NOT the physician who performed the procedure (and are not a partner in the same practice and same specialty), then you are NOT covered by the global period.

Code based on documentation of service(s) provided.

Hope that helps.
