Observation to initial
« on: April 24, 2015, 12:18:16 PM »
Hi, I'm trying to dis-cypher which code to use. My provider did an observation w/ H&P and then the next day (more than 24 hours) did the admit. We are trying to determine if she should bill a hospital inpatient code 99221-99223 Or Observation to admit code 99234-99236. Or both or something else. Anyone have experience with this?
