For inpatient services, review codes 99221-99223 for the initial hospital care service. However, read the code definitions carefully to be sure documentation supports the required level of history, exam, and medical decision making. For discharge, review codes 99238-99239. These discharge codes cover the discharge day.
If the admission and discharge were on the same date, you should instead look at 99234-99236.
