Same day admit and discharge code

Annie Posted Tue 11th of April, 2017 11:53:21 AM
If patient died while Hospitalist see patient as a Initial visit and no discharge summary was done can you still code Same Day Admit/Discharge Code or do you only use a Initial Code

According to coding guidelines, since the hospitalist has not prepared the discharge summary note, he should bill for only initial patient visit.
