Our doctor wants to bill for a hospital discharge but the patient died on the same day. She did dictate a discharge summary for this patient but at the end of the report she states, "patient taken off life support and died a short time later." Can we bill for that? Our doctor was handling the pain management for this patient.

Hope this makes sense.

Hospital Discharge

I can't see you not being able to bill for a discharge if a full discharge was preformed and documented.
