Thread: Consultation visit included in Global Package

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a question about the global surgery package. Let's say the patient had a diagnosis of breast cancer and Dr Smith performed the surgery and the patient comes in 2 weeks after surgery for a consultation for chemo with Dr Jones who has the same tax id # as Dr Smith, the dx of breast cancer is billed for Chemo Consult. Should the Chemo Consultation visit be considered included in the global surgery package or can it be billed seperately?

    Are they different specialties?

    If different specialties (even w/ Same TIN) then it is not global.
