Billed non-medicare patient 99253 inpatient consultation on 1/5/2017. Patient was discharged on 1/7/2017. On 1/12/2017 the patient was seen in the office for a follow-up to discuss test results. How would the 1/12 visit be coded? An Established E/M (99213?). Or should it be billed as an office consultation? (99243?)

This would be billed as an established visit. The provider has already seen the patient previously.
