Can Urgent Care Dr. bill for E&M office visits????
« on: March 17, 2010, 12:14:15 PM »
our dr's practice uses place of service -20 (urgent care) but he also sees the patients for continuing care.  he bills E&M 99204, 99214, 99213, etc.  Only one workers comp insurance denied the E&M for: Out of providers scope of service.

is that correct?  i was thinking of i changing the place of service to -11 (office) and rebill for only the office visits.  what do you think???  thanks!

If it was a scheduled visit for continuing care then the place of service should be 11.  I would try that.
