Admit after surgery

  1. Default Admit after surgery
    Medical Coding Books
    Can one charge for an admission e/m if the paitient is in a 90-day global period for a previous surgery? (the reason for admission is due to the previous surgery). I do not think so but I would like a second opinion to be sure.

    Default 90 Day Global
    What was the reason the patient was re-admitted within the 90 days? Was there a complication? Was it planned? It depends on the reason why the patient was re-admitted.



  3. Default admit
    The reason for admit was a complication of the previous surgery. In one case, it was for post-op pain. Another case it was a hematoma that needed to be drained...

    Does that change things enough?
