    Question 99223 Billed by MD and NP on same DOS
    Medical Coding Books
    Being new to the field, not only of behavioral health, but coding in general, this is my burning question of the day, that I have not been able to find an answer to.

    MD and NP both billed out a 99223 same DOS, with overlapping times..can this be right?

    Thanks for any advice/opinions!

    No this cannot be correct, it can be a shared encounter where the NP performs most of the service and the MD comes in for the end, however the MD must document his own note and can make reference to the note provided by the NP and then entire encounter is then billed as the MD. But they may not both bill for the same day.
