    Default 2 E/m Same Day

    AAPC: Back to School
    Could someone help me, I'm looking for articles related to when it is apporiate to bill 2 E/M codes on the same day. I read some where you can bill this for out patient only if the services are un-related. But I need documentation that i can refer back to.

    Check the CMS Internet-only Manual (Claims) chapter 30.6.7 B, where it instructs carriers not to pay for two separate visits by the same physician/group on the same day, unless the two visits are unrelated.


    (Hope the above link works!)
