Thread: Two E/M Codes On The Same Day

    Default Two E/M Codes On The Same Day

    AAPC: Back to School
    One of the hospitalist saw a patient early that day and charged a 99233 later the pt's condition became critical and the doctor later came back this time charging a 99291. Can I bill two e/m codes on the same date of service by the same physician in a situation like this?

    Smile Yes you can

    Yes you can. Just be sure that the ICD-9-CM codes justify each service. It is billable without modifier. Good luck!
