discharge after a cardiac cath

Would you bill for an E&M visit following a cardiac cath if
1. pt stays overnight (not inpt or observation status. Considered outpt in a bed. MD does see& examine pt before they leave.
2. pt was an inpatient for 3 days prior to cath & discharged same day of procedure. Can discharge be billed? Cardiologist admitted patient for chest pain.


  • Next day - as long as you have med nec for the visit, yes you can.
    Same day, unless there are other conditions being treated no same day global rules apply

    Thank you
