Thread: E/M visit, then pt admitted to hospital

    Default E/M visit, then pt admitted to hospital

    AAPC: Back to School
    I know the rule but here's a little twist: Patient is in our clinic and has an extensive visit with the doc. The doc tells the patient that she needs to go the the hospital and be admitted. So another doc will actually admit this patient to the hospital. Since my doc is not admitting the patient to the hospital, so can't my doc bill for her services?

    Your doctor can bill for his office visit, assuming that the admitting doc isnt from the same practise/same tax id.
