E/M against medical advise

  1. Default E/M against medical advise

    What do you report if a patient leaves on the same day of admission against medical advise?

  2. #2
    Nothing except the admission, given documentation supports. Just because a patient leaves, doesn't void out the encounter. If the service was rendered, you report it
