Thread: Pin Removal In Office.

  1. #1

    Default Pin Removal In Office.

    AAPC: Back to School
    Patient had CRPP performed on 5/14/09 (26608). Presented to the office on 7/9/09 for pin removal.

    I don't think I can charge for this as this was done in the office. Is that correct?

    that is correct, it is considered part of the global surgical package and not separately reportable.
