    AAPC: Back to School
    Helllo Everyone, would my physician get a bullet for the following?

    Abdomen: Postoperative state. I am unable to palpate the liver or spleen, he is postoperative from his aneurysm repair.

    I would say no, but I just want to make sure.

    Your opinions are appreciated.

    Default postop addomen exam

    2 points,

    1. Yes, he would get a bullet for examining the abdomen; but,

    2. is the patient still in the global period? Then the E&M would be 99024.

    Hope this helps.
