    Question billing new pt versus est.
    Exam Training Packages
    Question, doctor has dual speciality, GYN , and Mental Health.
    Pt has been seen in the practice for Mental health but never GYN can we charge new pt for the gyn visit or would this still be an established pt because it is the same doctor?
    Thanks in advance.

    You would not be able to BILL a New pt visit since the patient has been seen by him before, but you can schedule the patient in a New Patient appt slot.

    Established if they have been seen in the last 3 years.

    Different specialty only counts when it involves different providers.
