Does anyone know if a surgeon performs surgery and a PA see the patient in POST-OP can't you. Bill for an office visit using a modifier. I never thought you could. I'll during the post-op know matter who saw the patient. I am being told differently. Can someone please clarify

if its related to surgery, an actual post-op visit you cant bill for it from my experience. only if the patient is being seen for a completely unrelated issue from the surgery can you bill for the office visit with the -24 modifier.

You can use 99024 to report a post-OP E&M during the global period for tracking purposes. Its an information only code since its bundled in the surgery.
