    Question 62272

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our Dr's are asking if there is a E&M for followup on the lumbar drain? Anyone?

    62272 has zero (0) global days. If it's medically necessary, you could charge for a follow up office visit. We have had patient's were the spinal puncture didn't completely alleviate the problem and an office visit was needed to address the patient's condition.
