    If a patient goes to and Urgent Care facility that is owned by a hospital and treated. Then later that day need to go to the ER can the Urgent care and ER both bill for their visits?

    We can't bill 2 E/m codes in same day, but if it is diffrent complaints we can bill the 2nd E/M code with 25 mod.

    The facility can bill 2 E&Ms on the same day even with the same complaint. You would use the 27 modifier on the second E&M. Your rev codes will be different. You will use the 25 modifier on both E&Ms if a procedure was performed at either encounter.
