General Info

Billing Amount: $79.90

Description

On-call admission assessment is the first hospital in-patient admission general assessment per patient per 30-day period if: a. the physician is a general practitioner or family physician participating in the hospital’s on-call roster whether or not the physician is on-call the day the service is rendered; b. the admission is non-elective; and c. the physician is the most responsible physician with respect to subsequent in-patient care. The amount payable for any additional on-call admission assessment rendered by the same physician to the same patient in the same 30-day period is reduced to the amount payable for a general re-assessment.
