    Default Subsequestion hosp visit e/ms

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can the 99231 thru 99233 be billed on the same day by Doctors of different specialties? I would assume (hate to use that word in coding) the ICD on claims would need to correlate to the docs speciality? For example an internal med doc vs a Respiratory doc....

    Default Different specialties

    Yes, physicians of different specialties may each be coding 99231-99233 for the same patient on the same date of service. Use the Dx that is appropriate for each visit.
