• Different Specialty in the Same Office


    We have a hearing aid specialist that performs hearing exams and provides hearing aids in our office. When the specialist sees patients, some may come back and see one of our physicians. Is this patient a new patient or an established patient to the other physician?

    Answer:

     It’s a different specialty so it would be a new patient exam. For additional information about new vs established exams please visit Pop Quiz: Billing for New vs. Established Patients.
