I have a Dr who has the patient set their appt up for their EGD or Colonoscopy. Than on the day of the procedure not in the clinic but on the acute floor he does his H&P with the patient. Can I charge for this or is this now considered part of the procedure? Need help!!!!!!

Thanks

Global to procedure

Just because the facility requires an H&P does not make this a "decision for surgery" or "significant separately identifiable" E/M service.

This is global to the procedure (the RVUs for the procedure already include the usual evaluation required prior to said procedure).
