Thread: Charging for office visit after colonoscopy

    Default Charging for office visit after colonoscopy

    AAPC: Back to School
    A patient has a colonoscopy and returns to the doctor's office a week later to get the results. Can the doctor charge for the office visit even though colonoscopies do not have any "global days"?

    We typically bill a level 99212 with the diagnosis from the colonoscopy.
