Thread: Cpt 62362

    Default Cpt 62362

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am new to pain coding and our doc wants to bill for inpatient follow-up after the 62362 which they performed and billed for. I believe the f/u visits should be global as 62362 has a 90 day global. They want to bill 99231s for 6 days worth of work. Any suggestions?
