copay during global visit

I know when a patient is coming in for a “global period visit” you cannot charge an
office visit. How about a copay? We do not charge a copay to the patient for these visits.
However a co-worker that works also, elsewhere says they charge the patient a copay for
all visits to the doctor whether or not a “global visit” Thanks

re: copay during global visit

We don't charge co-pays in the global period as there would be nothing to post the co-pay to. We don't send post-op visits to insurances. If the patient is coming in for an unrelated problem, then you can charge a co-pay as the visit is unrelated to the surgery.

I agree. No co-pay for visits in the global period.
