global period - charged for the clinic visit

  1. Default global period - charged for the clinic visit

    Our hospital and clinic are associated, now with that in mind....my questions is.. a pt comes into ER for a dog bite, had stitches.. the next day she came into the clinic to have it check because it was inflamed. This has a 10 day global. Would the pt be charged for the clinic visit.

    Thanks

    initial thought is no - use 99024 to indicate it was an E&M office visit within the global period

    Are you under the same tax I.D.? If not, then yes you can bill an office visit.

    If the doctor from your clinic saw the patient in the hospital, then it would be post op.
