what is the correct coding for a physcian visit to the skilled nursing home facility to see a pt who is considered "custodial status". I am mainley concerned which place of service code(s) to use for Medicare Part B billing, but would welcome feedback on CPT codes as well. Also is there a modifier if he sees multiple pts on the same day.
