I have told our doctors that we cannot bill the initial hospital visit on the day that we admit the patient from the office, if we did not go to the hospital. At a recent seminar the instructor said that if the doctors are dictating the admit note and then faxing it to the hospital so that when the patient arrives they can be directly admitted that we can bill the initial hospital visit instead of the office visit. Where do I find out what is the correct way? I need to have a concrete answer to bring back to the doctors.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
