    Default Coding for reading EKGs

    AAPC: Back to School
    My doctors read EKGs at the hospital both for in and outpatients. Should the reading for the EKG be billed with the POS as inpatient, outpatient or ER? This would be as opposed to billing them as being read in the office, which they do not.

    You bill the POS according the patient's status.
