December 2016 Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual

Inpatient and Outpatient Hospital Services Handbook : 4 Outpatient Hospital (Medical and Surgical Acute Care Outpatient Facility) : 4.2 Services, Benefits, Limitations, and Prior Authorization : 4.2.3 Day Surgery

Inpatients may occasionally require a surgery that has been designated as an outpatient procedure. The physician must document the need for this surgery as an inpatient procedure before the procedure is performed. These claims are subject to retrospective review.
These procedures are for clients who are scheduled for a day surgery procedure and are not inpatient at the time the day surgery is performed.
