Yes you can get paid sometimes. If your documentation supports decision for surgery was made on day 2 you may add mod 57 to the e/m visit; if your documentation indicates the e/m was above and beyond the normal pre-operative preparation you may add mod 25. The procedures subject to the 90 day global period (which of course begins the day before surgery) are sometimes hard to get paid, your documentation will need to be detailed to explain the circumstances requiring the e/m and you will in many cases need to appeal your claim. In either case it can be a challenge getting paid for e/m the day of or day before surgery. (Just an FYI from my experience Medicaid has never paid for an e/m with mod 25 or 57.)
