Thread: Can I bill for an OV and hospital on the same day?

  1. #1

    Default Can I bill for an OV and hospital on the same day?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Pt is Medicare.
    She was seen in the office on 1-5-10 for a follow up on HTN. Later the same day she was admitted to the hopital for a completely un-related issue from her appintment earlier in the day. Is there a appropriate modifier I can use to bill the office visit and the hospital????

    You need to put a 25 modifier on the ov and make sure different diagnosis on the ov from the hospital.
