Also asked, what is the CPT code for surgical clearance?
Beside above, how do you code a preoperative visit? Visits for preoperative clearance require ICD-10-CM codes that denote the following information: Intent for pre-operative clearance (Z01. 81x)
- Z01. 811 (Encounter for preprocedural respiratory examination)
- J44. 1 (COPD with acute exacerbation)
- M17. 11 (Unilateral primary osteoarthritis of the right knee)
In respect to this, how do I bill for surgical clearance?
A preoperative examination to clear the patient for surgery is part of the global surgical package, and should not be reported separately. You should report the appropriate ICD-10 code for preoperative clearance (i.e., Z01. 810 – Z01. 818) and the appropriate ICD-10 code for the condition that prompted surgery .
