Thread: Post Op debridement or binocular microscopy?

    Default Post Op debridement or binocular microscopy?

    AAPC: Back to School
    My physician billed 92504 during the 90 day global for 69641 and Tricare paid it . Is this correct???

    Sometimes my providers also bill 31237-58 during post op. Would this be correct? It's hard to know what is OK to bill during a post op.

    Thanks for any help.

    31237 should be billed with a Mod 79.

    Tricare should not have paid for the 92504 during the PO as this would have been included in the surgery care.

    On the 31237-58, does this have to do with ear surgery or a septoplasty or sinus? I will need more information/details.
