    Question Inpt Post-op Pain Mgmt

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am having a conflict with the correct coding for the doctor visits for post-op day #1 & #2 when a continuous spinal intrathecal astromorph for pain control is used. Any suggestions for the CPT codes to use?

    Per the paranthetical note it looks like 01996 would be ok.
