MD is rounding on patient and patient wants to leave AMA.  MD documents AMA note at 1118. But, then he dictates a progress note and signs it at 1130.  He wants to charge a subsequent hospital visit.  Should this be subsequent visit or discharge code?

My opinion.  If the service was a subsequent hospital visit, that is what should be billed.  On the other hand you probably could bill a discharge summary if you wanted to.
