New Patient Vs. Established Patient

By CPT definition, a new patient is “one who has not received any professional services from the physician, or another physician of the same specialty who belongs to the same group practice, within the past three years.”

Otherwise, established patient codes are used. Using the correct coding for the patients history with your practice will help avoid denials and you to get paid faster!
