    Default 99221-99223 - someone please correct me

    AAPC: Back to School
    someone please correct me if i am wrong. under the heading of 99221-99223, inpatient hospital visits, intitial and subsequent, my understanding is these codes can be used if patient is medicare as an initial consult or if a physician is seeing a patient for the first time during this admission into the hospital? am i correct?

    thanks for all input, we are going round and round this issue.

    You are correct. This also applies to Medicare Replacement Plans, since consults are not allowed effective 1.1.2010.
