Post-Operative Evaluation and Management (CPT 99024)

Reporting of CPT code 99024 is required for all post-operative visits furnished during the global period, regardless of the setting in which the post-operative care is furnished. In situations in which the practitioner who performs the procedural part of the service transfers post-operative care to another practitioner (e.g., ophthalmologist to optometrist) using modifier 55, the practitioner who assumes the post-operative care portion of the service should report CPT code 99024 for post-operative visits if they meet the reporting requirements.
