I have a friend who presented me with this question. She works in a Family practice setting. She stated their office had seen a patient on the same day for an auto accident and also for treating the patients blood pressure&DM. She wanted to charge two office visits on the same day. They were going to send the MVA visit to the auto carrier and the BP&DM to patients health ins. It was suggested that they split the charge in 1/2 and send each to the respective ins. co. I would assume that it would be appropriate to append the -25 modifier to the visit of the reason why the appt. was made. Would that be correct? I have never heard of billing the patient for two office visits on the same day. Has anyone experienced the problem before?
