    I would like to know if anyone else uses the s0630 code and does it pay?

    Default suture removal

    Has anyone tried using 99024? Postoperative follow-up visit, normally included in the surgical package, to indicate that an evaluation and management service was performed during a postoperative period for reason(s) related to the original procedure. Perhaps use this procedure code w/o any E/M code at all? Although I'm not really sure how the billing and reimbursement side view this code? Should it only be used with major surgical procedure f/u visits?

    The S codes are used by the Blue Cross/Blue Shield Association (BCBSA) and the Health Insurance Association of America (HIAA) to report drugs, services, and supplies for which there are no national codes but for which codes are needed by the private sector to implement policies, programs, or claims processing. They are for the purpose of meeting the particular needs of the private sector. These codes are also used by the Medicaid program, but they are not payable by Medicare.

    Default Cost?

    How much do you charge and/or the standard allowable for S0630?
