Thread: ER Billing

    Default ER Billing

    AAPC: Back to School
    If a patient is seen in the ER and then taken to surgery to repair a wound injury and then at some point admitted to the hospital is the surgery billed as an ER place of service or inpatient?
    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Default ER/SX/Admit

    Admit overrides ER if same day, I would charge admitt with a 57 modifier and the sx code

    Except the ER doc can charge his/her ER visit...unless s/he was the provider who took the patient to surgery...unlikely.
