Hi. I dont see 4 elements of HPI to qualify for the 99214, however, that point is moot. If your provider admitted the patient on the same day as the office visit, all of the office services are included in the hospital admit code. You can bill the 99221 with the modifier "AI" for that date of serivce. The seond day would be billed with a 99231-3 depending on the level of service. In this case, you may want to consider the discharge day code instead if I understand your note correctly. Good luck. Anita Johnson, CPC (soon to be CEMC)

- SHE WILL BE ADMITTED TO THE HOSPITAL
Medicare Patient comes in for a schedule visit in the physician's office place service 11. The doctor I work with decided to admit the patient to the hospital. If he admited the patient to the hospital, but did not see the patient on the floor once they were admitted, how would I bill this. He has 99214. I am wondering if this should be 99221 with place of service 11 since the actual visit was in office setting, stay with 99214, or bill 99221 for the second day for initial hospital care, but for the second day the patient was discharged. Or bill the first day as 99221 with place of service 21. I looked at transmital 1875 but could not find my answer. Any help would be appreciated.
