    Default 99213-25 same day and Dx as 11750
    Medical Coding Books
    Can someone please tell me if the Dr. sees a pt on the same day as the procedure code 11750(10 day global) and does a 99213-25 and uses the same dx for both codes, is this payable? Does it fall into not significant, separately identifiable? This is a podiatry service. Thanks you for any comments you have, this Dr. likes to argue every point with us!

    It is payable but you better make sure the documentation supports it. If it was a routine procedure with no complications and didnt need the extra time for a e&m code then i would only be coding the procedure code.
