    How would I bill for what the provider calls admission notes?

    That depends. What type of provider is doing the admission? MD? Inpatient admission? If it's an inpatient admission by an MD, the provider may choose to use an E/M code for admission or the 90801 (assuming the documentation meets the requirements). I know often the MDs will use the E/M codes for these admissions as most carriers have a limit on the number of 90801s reimbursable in a year (usually a rolling calendar year).

    Hope this helps!
