I agree. You should not bill self pay any different than you would an insurance company. Still follow the same coding guidelines.You should only charge for the admission....if it were Ins you would only
bill for the Admit. Always post your charges for private pay the same as
you would for Insurance-private or Medicare/Medicaid.
Hi,If a private pay patient comes into the office to see the physician and is admitted to the hospital can you charge a office visit? I know if it is Insurance related you can charge for the hospital admit, but you cannot charge for the office visit. Please help
