I have a physician who saw a patient in the ER for cholecystitis and removed the patients gallbladder due to the cholecystitis. The patient came in for her post op visit and the pathology revealed she actually had gallbladder consult and he is now treating her for the cancer. Do I still bill for post-op visit or can we bill for a follow-up since he spent over an hour with her and will be spending more time coordinating care??
