Patient is inpatient status so these would default to inpatient codes. Our standard of practice is if Medicare we convert to 99221-99223 based on documentation. If they do not meet those requirements then it would go to the subsequent follow up visits such as 99231-99233. You should not be using est patient codes for a patient that is inpatient. We are still billing consults to those companies that accept them. Hope this helps.
