“Global” Post op visits. Providers have the tendency to believe that they cannot receive payment for a visit or procedure performed within a “global period” of a #surgery.

This is not the case.

Know your modifiers and be precise with your diagnoses pointers, insurance companies are certain to pay the claim. For example in some cases, the provider may need to perform an assessment(EM) on a problem that had nothing to do with the previous operation. So know your global periods as well.

There are also instances in which the Provider will need to address issues that may have arose due to the surgery. In order to properly treat the issues, it may be necessary to perform labs and or procedures.

A note to providers. If your note does not support what you have performed “it didn’t happen”.

Again, know your global modifiers…..
