We use '99460' for admitting a newborn and '99462' for subsequent visits. What CPT code should you use for discharge if it is NOT on the same day ?

99238 Hospital discharge day management; 30 minutes or less
99463: Initial hospital or birthing center care, per day, for evaluation and management of normal newborn infant admitted and discharged on the same date
