Patient admitted under me 2 years back - I was not PMD. Subsequent to discharge has been following with PMD.

Now patient comes to office (after 2 years) to establish care with me as new PMD - does not want to follow with previous PMD any more.

Patient requests Nursing Home placement as finds it difficult to take care of meds at home. Called nursing home - patient is already on wait list so nothing to be done by me.

Has Osteoporosis - on meds already, has Hep C - never completed treatment due to side effects so asked patient to see GI with new medication for Hep C being available now, Counseled patient to quit smoking and RTC 3 months.

How to code for this visit and what code to use - any code for establishing care with new PMD?

Thanks
