Thread: Inpatient sub care and discharge day

    Question Inpatient sub care and discharge day

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a physician that wants to bill for an inpatient subsequent care day, and discharge day management for the same date of service. I know you can't bill for both on the same date. How do you bill for this correctly?

    We would bill the discharge in that scenario
