    Kind of a broad category....do you have specific questions? For the most part you code the same as any other physician office...but if you have specific questions that would help.

    Global billing is the same for urgent care as any other office. You do code the same as a primary physician office with the exception that your place of service code is 20 (urgent care) instead of 11 (office).
