These are the charges submitted. The reimbursement is at the mercy of the third party payors. For non US surgeons, cpt codes are the uniform method of coding the type of surgery in the US. I'd be interested in the geographical variation of charges within and outside the US. For me, all post op visits (one in uncomplicated or as many as necessary in complicated) are included.
