Default ADM FOR SOTALOL 2 different questions

HI,
If you see a pt in the office and set them up to come nito the hospital in about 10 days for sotalol load can you bill for an adm code if you do a seperate note, and it was planned? The CV will be done the next day after rounding on the pt and recording a note as to if the medicine did the job or not. Can the rounding visit be charged on the same day as the CV if there is a seperate note?

We bill this quite often even for a scheduled admit; because the provider is not doing a procedure per se, there isn't a CPT code to use so it is appropriate to bill an admit.
Use Dx code V58.83 and the code for the arrhythmia, usually 427.31.

Thanks we are the adm, attending and the ones doing the procedure. Would we still bill an adm and can we bill a rounding charge on the day of the procedure?

Our patients are generally inpatients for 3 days and we bill an admit on day one and follow-up visits for the next two days, generally 99233 as these patients need careful monitoring.
