If a patient is seen in obs on say 1/1/20 and then admitted on 1/2/20 what code do I use for 1/1/20? The hospital has the admission date as 1/2/20. We share call with another group and my Dr. saw the pt. on 1/1/20......Thanks!

If the patient is admitted to observation on 1/1 then you bill one of those admission codes (99218-99220). On day two the provider who admitted her to the hospital bills an initial inpatient code.
