Could someone clear up my head on this one? We don't normally have this scenario, but our provider is following someone for sx management. They initially saw pt in hospital, pt was discharged to home. There have been multiple followup visits in the pt's home. However, pt has returned to the hospital: should we bill initial again for the first hospital visit? Since we normally do only one-time consults, I'm not up to speed on following pts in & out of hospital. I think I understand that we can bill initial again (one per admission) since code clearly states new or established, but provider circled followup code. Also, once they go back home and provider follows up there, do we then bill established? THANKS!
