    Default Admit on day of pacer

    AAPC: Back to School
    If a E/P Dr sees a patient for a consult and decides that teh patient needs a pacemaker. The next day the E/P doctor does a H&P before the pacer. Can i bill the admit with a 57 modifier? or do i not bill anything but the pacer for that day, because the Dr already saw the patient for a consult the day before?

    thank you

    If the decision for surgery was truly on your consult day, you cannot charge for the admit.
