    Default Catherization and 99233 Subsequent Care

    AAPC: Back to School
    If the patient had a Heart Cath in the morning then later the same doctors returns to check on patient & dictate a progress- follow up note can that doctor bill a 99233 along with biliing for the heart cath 93510 ?

    Thank you.

    No, you cannot bill a subsequent visit. There is a one day global period for the heart cath. And any visits done on the same day as the cath would be included in this.

    The only time we bill a subsequent on the same day as a cath is if the decision for the cath is made at that visit, then we add -25 to the visit, and bill the cath
