    Default Medicare 99221-99223 & surgery codes

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need clarification, can I charge an inpatient visit 99221-99223 & a surgical procedure cfor the same date of service in regard to Medicare patients. Or is the surgical cpt code I use over rule leaving the visit as part of the global pkg.??

    Yes. If this is the decision for surgery for a major procedure (90 day global), you'd add modifier 57. If there's a minor procedure (1-10 day global), you'd add modifier 25.
