re: Hospital Discharge Code 99239

Only one hospital discharge day management service is payable per patient per hospital stay and Only the attending physician of record reports the discharge day. For any physician not acting on behalf of the attending physician, use Subsequent Hospital Care (CPT code range 99231 - 99233) for a final visit.management service. Please see below the reference from CMS.
