Proper Urgent Care Coding and Documentation for Common Procedures


Urgent care centers must comply with the same coding guidelines as any other provider of outpatient services but with unique challenges.  Emergency Department has its own set of CPT® codes but not so for Urgent Care Centers (and Walk-In Clinics or Family Medicine or Pediatric offices with walk-in hours). Urgent care also performs many procedures, and correct documentation and coding are a challenge, as is knowing when a separate evaluation and management code may be billed.
