    Default inpt transfer to another Hosp for procedure

    AAPC: Back to School
    When a patient is transferred to another hosp for a procedure (never discharged) and brought back to my hosp once they are finished.. do I code that procedure or does that facility code for it?

    Default Code only what YOU did

    You code ONLY what YOU did. If you didnt' perform the procedure, you don't code it.
