Pre-Op visit

  1. #1
    Default Pre-Op visit
    Medical Coding Books
    A medicare/medicaid patient comes in for a pre-op visit 6 days prior to her surgery. The physician doing the pre-op is also the surgeon. Does this visit fall under the global since it is pre-op for hysterectomy 90 day global or is it billable?
