One of my physicians saw a patient in our office clinic and told him to go to hospital for IV antibiotics. However, that physician didn't admit the patient but one of my other physicians saw the patient in a consult and then followed him at the hospital over the next couple of days. Can that second physician bill for his initial consult done that same day? Thanks,

If both physicians are of same group and specialty, only one can bill for that date of service. It is generally the best reimbursement to bill for the provider who saw the patient in the hospital.
