Hey all,

Can anyone clarify on this:

If a SNF patient is admitted to the hospital for 4 days and then returns to the SNF, can the SNF provider bill 99318 once they see the pnt back in the SNF? Is there a limitation as to how many days that the patient would have to be out of the SNF in order to bill the 99318? There isn't any documentation regarding this in the CPT code description or any of the other articles I've found.

Thanks.
