Thread: Revenue Code 510 During Global Period

    Default Revenue Code 510 During Global Period

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is it appropriate for a medical center to bill a facility fee using revenue code 510, when the physician seeing the patient is employed by the facility, and is providing routine care during the global period for a surgery the physician performed?

    Yes the 510 is for the facility charge there just will be no professional charge. Global does not apply to facility billing.
