Hello Guys ,

still a big confusion .can anyone help with this :

If all three key elements of the minimum initial hospital visit are not met, would you instead submit subsequent hospital codes ? (Ex: initial hospital visit case is leveling out to History - EPF, Exam -EPF and MDM - Moderate). Being the lowest level is detailed/detailed/low, I'm not sure how to proceed. Any insight appreciated, thank you!

please provide reference.

Hi,

No, you cannot use a subsequent hospital code for an initial hospital E/M code. Have the provider educated on proper documentation concerning initial hospital documentation.

Have a great day
