Palliative care consults

My questions is with regard to palliative care:
Are palliative care consults coded with SNF codes or are they time based?
How is it recognized as palliative care (if that even matters)? POS?

This is a unfamiliar territory for me and oddly enough, when I searched the threads I found several questions re: palliative care with no responses!

I was just under the impression that I would bill the code based on POS, NF E/M codes. I'm being told that a palliative care 'consult' can be billed and is reimbursed a certain amount...first of all most of mine are medicare and 'consult' codes are not allowed. So I'm at a loss. Is there something I'm missing?

for background: I solely bill Part B services for physicians who see patients in the NF.

Can anyone shed some light on this for me please?

Thanks!!:confused:

Have you learned anymore about Palliative Care coding since you posted this. This is something new for me as well and I would be billing for Part B services in the nursing facility.

Thanks,
Laurie
