I thought Medicare accepted cpt codes 99224-99226 for subsequent obs visits. But the other coder in the hospital thought Medicare didn't accept these codes. Needs some input on this subject please.

Thanks

Subsequent Obs

So that would mean if Dr A saw admitted patient he would get 99218-99220 and if he's also the provider that saw the patient up to their discharge I would use codes 99224-99226 for their subsequent obs care visits. But if Dr B provides the subsequent visit I would use 99211-99215 instead?

Thanks
