    Question Cpt 99024

    If a patient comes in during her post operative period, she sees the nurse for wound check, bandage changes etc....can the nurse utilize CPT 99024 or is this a physician only code? Does anyone have any documentation regarding this or perhaps a website that will say one way or the other?

    Any help you can give would be appreciated. Thank you.

    99024 is a no-charge post op visit, and you can use it any way you like. At least I assume you are posting it for tracking purposes only & not actually expecting any reimbursement $$ from anyone. We post this code all the time but never bill it to insurance carriers. I use it for physicians, mid-levels, and nurses alike. It all depends on what your particular practice wants to track, I guess.
