    Default help psyche consult in ed

    AAPC: Back to School
    If psychiatry is consulted in the ER and then that same day or next day the patient is admitted to mental health ward...should the psyche doc charge an admit(ex.99221) consult(99241 or 99281) or the psyche eval code 90801...

    Default Psych admission

    The Psych MD consult visit in the ED should get "rolled" into the psych admission. The day of admission in psychiatry should be 90801.
