CTS performed a debridement and removal of sternal wires on patient with non-healing thoracotomy. Patient receives serial wound vac changes until wound is ready to close. Reconstructive Plastics specialist performs myocutaneous muscle flaps to close and CTS is the assist. Operative note states pt will be admitted under CTS service. Since the CTS only assisted can he bill for subsequent daily visits or is he still bound by the global surgery rules? Haven't been able to find any sources that address this particular scenario.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Since you will be billing for the flaps and that is a procedure that has a global. I do not think you can charges subsequent visits.
