    Default CPT for surgeon visiting patient in acute rehab.

    AAPC: Back to School
    A little background, the orthopedic surgeon performed surgery on a patient, patient was discharged from the hospital, and then moved to the Rehab. Center. Need help with the CPT code for the surgeon visiting the patient in the Acute Rehabilitation Center of the hospital. Thanks.

    Default 99024

    The code to use is 99024, postoperative visit which is included in the surgical package. POS would be the rehab facility.
