Are 2 office visits on the same day payable if they are by different providers?

The answer would be situation specific considering certain factors relevant to this case. However, in general, the insurance carrier may not pay two E/M office visits billed by a physician or another physician of the same specialty from the same group practice for the same patient on the same day unless there is documentation that the visits were unrelated and could not be provided during the same encounter. Please let us know in case of any further clarification. Thank you.
