    Patient came in for routine 6 week post partum exam and was due for annual wellness exam can both be billed? I believe the annual wellness would not be covered at same time as 6 week post partum.

    I agree I don't think you can bill for the annual exam at the same time as a pp visit. One of my docs did this and I told him not to do an annual at the pp visit if the patient is due for a pap he can go ahead and do that but not the full physical exam. I would have the patient come back after she is out of the global period.

    Did your office provide global care for the OB patient? Your postpartum visit is not going to hit a CCI edit if you are using 99024 for global care. I see no reason why you couldn't do both at the same time, as long as your coding/documentation supports both.
