    Default New/Est when changing systems

    When a provider leaves one practice and starts his own practice would the patients that follow him be considered new or established patients? Thanks.
    Happy Coding, Claudia

    Default new vs established

    It doesn't matter. If he has seen the patient in the last 3 years, the patient is established.
