Discharge and readmit to same hospital

  1. Question Discharge and readmit to same hospital
    Medical Coding Books
    I have a physician who discharged a patient in the AM and then pt came back and was readmitted to hosp. Is this allowed? Are there any modifiers I need to look at sending? I thought only one visit per provider per day was allowed...

    If it's for the same problem, then just code a subsequent hospital visit ... you can use all the documentation to select your level of service.
