    AAPC: Back to School
    Pt was having gallbladder surgery and the surgeon called in our doc due to extreme adhesions. She advised but did not scrub into the procedure. How do i code this??
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Default Documentation

    What and how did your surgeon document the service?

    Did she note time spent in counseling/coordination of care ... that's really what your surgeon was doing.
