New patient or follow up?

Patient was seen as inpatient by Cardiology, then upon discharge sees same MD in office for the first time as a New Patient. Can this office visit be coded and billed as a New Patient, or is this considered a followup?

re: New patient or follow up?

This would not be a new patient since the doctor saw them in the hospital. This person is now an established patient.
