Thread: Physician Question on Hospital Services

    Question Physician Question on Hospital Services

    AAPC: Back to School
    My physician is wanting to know if he can bill his professional hospital charges (i.e. H&P, subsequent visits, and discharge) with his admitting diagnosis. The hospital is stating his diagnosis must match the attestation. Can anyone offer help?

    He should bill the diagnoses code that corresponds to the visit.

    I am with Erica on this. As Erica said he should bill the appropriate diagnosis that supports the visit.
