I understand that any visit within the post op period related to the procedure should be reported with a 99024. My question is who reports the 99024? Only the provider/practice who performed and received reimbursement for the procedure? I have a primary care provider who often sees his patients after they have had a surgery in the hospital (not performed by him or any of our providers) and he is reporting a 99024. Should he be or should he be reporting a regular E&M visit even if he addresses the reason the patient had the surgery since we were not the ones who performed nor were we the ones who were paid for the procedure. Or does everyone, regardless of specialty, report the 99024 during the post op if they see the patient during the post op period?
