Can you bill for the professional part in the removal of the spinal stimulator electrode? It does fall into the global timeframe, and I haven't been billing for it, but lately my doctors have been questioning why I am not. I have read some of the other threads, and I know that at an ASC you can bill them, but I am not sure about in an office setting. I have requested the dictation from the physician when this is what the patient is seen for, and all they do is apply pressure and remove the electrode. It hardly sounds invasive at all. I have been entering this visit as a post op visit and not charging anything. If anyone can help me on this it would be greatly appreciated!
