I posted this question in another forum, but got no response. Any feedback is appreciated.

If a patient is seen in our family clinic by a physician assistant who transfers the patient to our ER, would both visits under the same tax ID# be billable?

Family practice and emergency medicine are two different specialties, so both visits can be billed. Some practices, however, will make a visit no-charge as a courtesy to the patient if, due to the urgent nature of their condition, they can't be treated safely at the office/clinic and must be transferred to an emergency department within the same organization on that same day.
