    Medical Coding Books
    can you bill same day admit/discharge (99234-99236) when the patient is observation status?

  2. Default
    Physicians who admit a patient to observation care for a minimum of 8 hours, but less than 24 hours and subsequently discharge on the same calendar date shall report an Observation or Inpatient Care Service (Including Admission and Discharge Services) CPT code (99234-99236).
    documentation stating the stay for hospital treatment or observation care status involves 8 hours but less than 24 hours
