we have a provider that came into our group and a patient that he use to treat wants to see him? would that patient be an established patient considering the patient followed him to our facility? we are an FQHC facility .

By CPT definition, a new patient is “one who has not received any professional services from the physician, or another physician of the same specialty who belongs to the same group practice, within the past three years.” So, if this pt has seen this specific provider within the past three years, they would be a established patient.
