Question please...I have a patient admitted to inpatient psychiatric care. A psychiatric history and physical is done by the MD. Psych doc bills appropriate CPT code.
A PA also performs an admission history and physical using the same diagnosis as psych...ex. 311 depression.
She is billing a subsequent visit code (99232) would this be appropriate? She is not performing a subsequent visit, she is doing a history and physical.
