New pt vs Estab pt
I work for a group of surgeons. They are all part of the same specialty and share same tax id #. We have a patient that came in December 2014 and we billed for new pt exam. Then same patient came back in June 2015 and seen a different doctor in our practice (same specialty, same tax id#) and pt was billed again for new pt exam. My question is shouldn't the 2nd exam-office visit be billed as an established patient?
