When a patient is rounded on more than once in 24 hours, can we bill Prolonged care as an add on to the original E/M code? Usually, the 2nd visit is by another provider so am I correct that it would go under the first provider that rounded that day?

Does anyone have any info/examples on the documentation guidelines?

Are Prolonged Services a red flag for the OIG? (I read that somewhere). Any experiences with that?

Thank you.
