consult & office visit on same day - different physician

One of my doctors saw a patient in our clinic on 10/1.  The patient then went to the ER later on in the day on his own.  Can one of my other physicians bill the hospital consult done that same day?  Same problem.



  • Correction...our clinic physician did send the patient to the hospital for IV antibiotics but he is not the physician who admitted the patient. Can my admitting physician bill the admit?  Thanks,
  • Hi Rebecca, 

    The office visit would be included in the admit.
