If this is just a follow up, as in no procedure was done and no global period applies, you would use the appropriate established patient E/M based on documentatation (99212-99215).
If there was a surgery with a global period this most likely will be a no charge 99024 unless something else was done/addressed. If there was a procedure done, like thoracentesis you would bill for that, or an E/M unrelated to the surgery (they had CTS but your provider also treats them for a sinus infection) you would use the appropriate established patient E/M with a 24 modifier.
