question...pt is a inpt, had surgery, was seen in follow up visits for multi days - nothing out of the ordinary, just following up from the surgery. the surgery has a 90 day global. I feel its a 99024, but another coder in our office feels we can bill out a follow up visit. Can someone help?
Thanks!

It is just the 99024 , if the surgery has a global then that applies to inpatient as well as clinic visits. Some facilities bill an inpatient visit with a no charge code, others just use the 99024.
