So... he is the ER doc AND the attending?? This is unusual.
I think its one or the other. He should not be billing the ER visit and the admit & d/c same day....but I have never heard of a situation where the ER doc admits and then becomes the attending.
In our cases, the ER docs calls in a specialist of the family doc to do the "admit", and those docs will roll up any work done in the ER into their "admit"
Than again...maybe I am confused by the situation!
Maybe if he is an ER doc for a separate entity (not affiliated with hospital) and then he puts on his "new hat" and becomes the attending, and the documentation is completely separate...I dunno...kinda just thinking outloud at this point...I hope someone has a more solid answer for you
