Friday Pop Quiz #38 – 12/21

Basal Cell Carcinoma

 

 

 

 

 

Answer: C

Yes, a 24 modifier is needed because the visit is within the 90 days of a complex closure global period. A 24 modifier is for E/M visits within a global period, unrealted to the procedure. A 79 modifier is for a procedure unrelated to the prior procedure within the global period.
