Acute Care Coding

I discharged a patient from an acute care hospital today and admitted them to inpatient rehab on the same date. Can I report the initial hospital care code for the admission to acute care?

An Office Visit and an Injection. Can I Bill Both with a Modifier 25?

A colleague informed me that billing an office visit every time I give a patient an injection can lead to an audit. I also read a recent article where an orthopedic practice had to pay back millions of dollars partially for this reason. I typically bill an established patient visit with an injection, but I always add a 25 modifier on the visit. Does that mean I am safe from an audit?
