Medicare claims for post-op care being denied as a billing error

 

When reporting claims for post-op care, the date of surgery is the date of service. Also, if there is a range of dates of service, report the range of dates in block 19 of the 1500 claim form or the electronic equivalent. Be sure to report an appropriate modifier to indicate that you are billing for post-op care.
