subsquent visit

Pt admitted on 5/14, discharged 5/16, Doctor that admitted also discharged on the 15 for a transfer to another hospital. Another Doctor from our same practice went in on the 15th and increased pt meds before transfer. Can we bill subsquent for the 15th?

I'm confused. You state that the patient was discharged on the 16th and then you state that the patient was discharged on the 15th. The patient can't be discharged from the same admit on two different days. Which was it?

re: subsquent visit

i think:
admitted hospital A on 5/14 by Doctor X
on 5/15 seen by Dr X and transfer order to Hospital B written, then prior to transfer Dr Y stops by and adjusts a med. Pt then leaves
on 5/16 pt at hospital B and discharged

So, you can only bill once service per day per specialty, so pick the highest paid service.
