    I work for an urgent care and when an est pt is seen for a work comp related injury per the request of their employer, can I bill the work comp carrier a new pt visit?

    Default This patient is established
    It doesn't matter who the payer would be or if the problem presented is new, since this patient is already established with your clinic, this would be an established patient visit.
