Question:  

Thanks for answering my question last time – I get it now that I would not charge for rounding on post-op patients of my call partners. What about non-surgical patients? Can I bill for making rounds?

Answer:

Yes, absolutely! As I said, you should treat the patient as if it were your own. So you would bill for subsequent hospital care (9923x) on patients previously seen by your call partner during that hospitalization.
