inpatient visit along with ov

    Question inpatient visit along with ov
    Medical Coding Books
    If a primary doc has an office vist that provokes an admit at the hospital, can we bill both? The primary doc and the admitting doc are NOT the same.

    Default OV and admit
    I would ask you this:

    Do the admitting doc and the OV doc work together? Specifically, do they submit charges with the same tax id?

    If the OV is done by Doc A with tax id 123 and the admission is done by Doc B with tax id 123, then I would bill the admission only.

    However, if OV is done by Doc A with tax id 123 and the admission is done by Doc B with tax id 789, then Doc A bills OV and Doc B bills admission.
