2 E/M the same day.
The patient went to the ER at 7am and was sent home after treatment.
Went back to the same Hospital and admited at 4pm for related reasons.
The ED billed the E/M and the hospital billed for the admission on the same day.
Only the admission was paid by the insurance company.
She received a bill fo the ER visit.

re: 2 E/M the same day.
The AMA guidelines state if the patient is admitted through the ED all E&M services provided in conjunction with hospital admission on the same day it is considered part of the initial hospital care and should not be reported separately.
