A hospitalist sees a patient as inpatient, billed with AI modifier, Dx: 585.6, 414.01, 401.1, 250.00.
Second day Dx: 414.01,585.6, 401.1,250.00
Third day Dx: 414.01, 401.1, 585.6, 250.00
By the time he is discharged on the fourth day, all the dx arrangement has changed. Is it Correct to bill this way or all four days need to have all the diagnosis in order as the forst day?
Any input will be appreciated.

2) A physician practice bills X-Ray globally.
THen when they do chart documentation in the EMR, they count (ordered X-Ray) as 1 point under DATA, so the level goes up in the E/M
Is this Okay even though we are billing global as well as counting a point for data?
Please advise.
