OV then admit

  1. Default OV then admit
    Medical Coding Books
    here's our scenario:

    pt seen in office on 12/1 by provider A as a consultation for the first time. at the end of the visit the provider has decided to admit the patient. 12/2 provider b sees pt and writes and h&p.

    are we able to bill for the OV consult for provider A for 12/1 and bill for the h&p by provider B on 12/2?

    p.s. both provider A and B are from the same specialty

    Default Doctor A never saw pt in hospital?
    So Doctor A, who saw patient as a consult in the office, never saw the patient in the hospital that same day? Nor did anyone from the practice?

    Default OV or consult for A
    The date of service is the date the patient was actually seen.

    I'd code the OV for Dr A on Dec 1, and the Initial hospital visit for Dr B on Dec 2.
