On our BCBS fee schedule 99024 has $51 allowance. We do not even bill it to insurance so i do not know if they would pay. I believe it is illegal to charge for 99024.
The CPT® manual defines 99024 as “Postoperative follow-up visit, normally included in
the surgical package, to indicate that an evaluation and management service was performed during a postoperative period for a reason(s) related to the original procedure.” This code is provided specifically for documenting that the follow-up visits,
which are expected after a procedure, are actually taking place. If you are not filing these no-payment visits, you expose your practice to charges of failing to provide the full level of care bundled into the procedure.
