We have some patients that transfer "in" to us. My question is - if these pateints are "new" to our practice can we charge them a new patient visit? If so, what codes would I use - CPT and ICD-9?
OOPS - i forgot to mention a very important part of the whole picture - these are OB patients - - - - - that makes a HUGE difference.......sorry! New OB patient - transferring in care after being seen out of state for antepartum care until now..
