A patient comes into the ER for a visit in the morning and then is sent home. Later in the day they call the patient to return to the ER because X-ray shows there is a fracture and they need to cast it. Patient returns to ER later in the day and gets a cast. I know we cannot bill for 2 services in the same day under the same specialty but would the casting still be billed under the provider who saw the patient first or would we bill the casting under the provider who actually did the casting?
Thank you
