Hello Melanie,

If the patient is seen in the post operative period for follow up to discuss the path report and the provider recommends additional treatment like chemo, is that visit billable outside of the global postop with modifier 24? If the provider only reviews the path report, this that included in the global surgery?

He can bill the "where do we go from here" visit whether he orders chemo or not, but his documentation must clearly present this picture and not be selected using any elements that were part of routine follow-up care.
