    Question Global vs Injections
    Medical Coding Books
    We have a pt who is covered under a global period. They came in for a post-op visit which we do not bill, but he also received and injection of toradol for post op pain. Is the drug/inj billable?


  2. Default
    Post op pain injection is separate from the surgery package.
