    Default Transfer to another hospital?

    Promo: Code Books
    Hi All:

    Please help me with this scenario. How would you code:

    1. A specialist/provider performs an admit in 2010 in Hospital A.
    2. Transfers the pt to Hospital B (higher level of service) where provider of the same group admits for intervention not available at Hospital A.

    Can we bill for both?

    If not, would Hospital B accept the admit report from transferring physician rather than having admitting physician at Hospital B do another work up without getting paid for it?

    Confusing enough for you? Thanks Everyone!!
