I have a physician who is covering for another physician in a hospital based wound clinic. My physician (physician A) is owned by the hospital and the hospital is his main location. The other physician (physician B) is not hospital owned and has another office of his own, but comes to the hospital wound clinic a few days a week. Physician A is covering for physician B in the hospital wound clinic. He sees a patient with in a global period for toe amputation. Physician A coded a 99214 for this visit. Can he bill for an established visit or should it be a post op code 99024?
Any help is GREATLY appreciated! I'm new to wound clinic coding
