Thread: ED visit on same day as peds visit

    Default ED visit on same day as peds visit

    AAPC: Back to School
    A patient was seen in the ER at our local hospital and was then sent here to be seen by our Pediatrician on the same day (we are the PCP for the patient).
    My question is: Can our pediatrician charge for the E&M on the same day there is another charge to the carrier from an Emergency Room, and should we get paid?

    Default You Should

    You should be paid for your service. The visits were different sites of services and different providers so there is no reason not to get paid for both.
