Question Reporting multiple postpartum visits

When patients are seen for more than one (for vaginal birth) or two (for C-section) postpartum visits, are these visits reported with the 0503F every time the patient comes in? I would like to know how different practices are reporting these visits. Given they are a zero charge, I now they do not go to the insurance company, but for reporting purposes...what is correct?

Should C-section wound checks without complications be reported as postoperative CPT 99024?

Many patients call in with complaints and are seen multiple times during the postpartum period before they "routine postpartum visit". Is there a coding guideline to follow for reporting these additional visits that are not billable outside of global?

I only post one 0503F to the insurance for reporting purposes.
c-section post ops are 99024
our office usually has a nurse triage problems to make sure patients need to be seen. Postpartum care included in a delivery charge covers routine visits for 6 weeks. if a patient is seen for an unrelated problem, you can bill for that using modifier 24
