Global Surgery Required Data Reporting For Post-Operative Care Begins

As of July 1, practitioners in Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon and Rhode Island are required to report claims data on post-operative visits furnished during the global period of specified procedures using Current Procedural Technology (CPT) code 99024. This CPT code indicates that an evaluation and management service was performed during a postoperative period for reasons related to the original procedure.

Specified procedures are those that are furnished by more than 100 practitioners and are either nationally furnished more than 10,000 times annually or have more than $10 million in annual allowed charges. Clinicians in groups of fewer than 10 practitioners are exempt from required reporting, however, all practitioners are encouraged by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to report if feasible.
