I have a physician who saw a patient in the Emergency and would like to bill a 99283 and then also admitted the patient and would like to bill a 99223. Is this correct?

A. Use of Emergency Department Codes by Physicians Not Assigned to Emergency
Any physician seeing a patient registered in the emergency department may use
emergency department visit codes (for services matching the code description). It is not
required that the physician be assigned to the emergency department.
