Timeliness of TP statement

    Unhappy Timeliness of TP statement
    Medical Coding Books
    The resident saw an inpatient for a consult on 1/1/11 at 1500 hours. The Attending saw the patient on 1/2/11 at 1645 hours. I believe the Attending has to see the patient within 24 hours of the resident's documentation in order to accept the resident's documentation for the code. If this is the case, can anyone point me to a link that explains this.
    Thank you!
