    Default Er with admission-modifier?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our doc was called to the er and did a full evaluation & work up-then decided to admit the patient. Is there a modifier to get paid for both? I know you can technically only bill one e/m visit per day but this was two seperate episodes of care for the same problem.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
    Thank you!

    Default Initial Hospital Visit

    All E/M services provided on the date of hospital admission will be rolled into one Initial Hospital Visit level of service.

    Hope that helps.
