Title: new patient or existing
Post by: Suraj on July 30, 2013, 09:12:03 AM
Doctor saw patient in nursing home.    A week later patient came to office for visit.   Do I bill new or exsting patient for office visit?

Existing patient. Place of service has nothing to do with this. If he or she has seen the patient within the last three years, that patient is an existing patient.
