    Default Billing for Admit

    AAPC: Back to School
    If a pt is admitted preoperative for tranfusion and platelets and a bunch of other testing prior to the surgery, is this billable as an admission?

    Default Admitted by the surgeon?

    NOT if patient is being admitted by the surgeon who's operating.
