    Default Site Check Following Heart Cath ??

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can anyone help me with a global queston. CRNP at Colorado conference brought back info that 8 days after heart cath, patient is brought back in for site chk and follow up sceduling and that the office is billing a 99213 or 99214. Our billing office has been treating this type of appt as global with the cath. We are a Pennsylvania practice. Could we be able to bill site chk visit and the follow up appt also???

    A heart cath has a 0 global day periold. You can bill for followup using E&M as long as your physician documents the visit and bills the appropriate level based on the visit and documentation.

    Hope this helps,
