    AAPC: Back to School
    Looking at the rvu schedule it shows that egd and colonscopy has 0 global days. I have a surgeon who allows has the pt come back to his office for a follow up. So far they have not been billing anything for the follow up but since there are 0 global days can't they bill 99212-99215?

    Yes, you should be billing the appropriate office visit code s/p procedures with 0 global days...

    Smile Post op days

    Go to the Medicare website and do a fee schedule look-up. That will have the global days for you.
