    Cool Hospital D/C and readmission on the same day

    AAPC: Back to School
    One of our family parctice docs discharged a patient from the hospital, later that same day he was readmitted by a different one of our docs for a different problem. How do I bill this?

    Use a 22 modifier. It will probably get denied. Appeal it. It's payable.
