Thread: e/m for subs visits after a procedure with no global period

    Cool e/m for subs visits after a procedure with no global period

    AAPC: Back to School
    I had a physician who did a consult on one day, then did a debridement of wounds. The same physician did subsequent visits. Can I use an E/M for the consult, and the subsequent visits?

    Default Consultation

    Check out the consultation section of the Medicare Claims Processing Manual. I think it will help.
