    Hi, I know we have to combined 2 visits to 1 if patient was seen on the same date. What if patient come back within 24 hours but on the following date, can we charge the patient? Thank you very much for your help!

    Yes. Since its the next day you can charge for that. We often see patients several days in a row. I'm not sure about medicare patients since i work in a peds office. Hope that helps.

    Thank you very much!

    My understanding of "Same day" is from 12am to 11:59pm. Please correct me if I am wrong.
