We had a pt come in as a hospital follow up and for suture removal. We are in the global period for the stitches. How do I bill this so that we get paid for this office visit. His sutures were not ready to come out yet.
re: suture removal
If you placed the sutures (which I'm assuming you did since you stated, "we are in the global period for the stitches") then neither the suture removal or the office visit is billable.
He had the stitches put in at the hospital. We are just following up on the wound care and removal of stitches.
