MRP (Most Responsible Physician): The physician/service who admits the patient to the hospital. The MRP can transfer doctors and specialties throughout a patient’s hospital stay, but only one doctor can be MRP for the patient at one time.

As the MRP, there are some premiums that you become eligible for: 

E082 premium can be added to an admission consult or assessment. This premium is only allowed once per admission.

E083 premium added to subsequent visits:

   
C122 + E083 is billed day 2 of hospital admission assessment

         C123 + E083 is billed day 3 of hospital admission assessment

         Hospital visit + E083

         C124 + E083 are billed on day of discharge.

*note patient must be in hospital for 48 hours to bill C124 + E083


ICU Billings:

*note physician that admits to ICU must not be the same physician that patient is discharged to.

C143 + E083 is billed by MRP on day 2 after leaving ICU
