In patient visit

Sonnia Posted Wed 13th of July, 2016 15:17:48 PM
Surgical second opinion in patient visit on the same day as consult (99221) by a physician within the same group. Should the second opinion visit be considered a new pt or subsequent visit (99231-99233)?

Hi, If, once provider has completed the initial consultation, provider assumes responsibility for the management of even a portion of the patient's care, all subsequent services are reported using subsequent hospital care codes(99231-99233).
