I have a denial for an OPEN hysterectomy done as ambulatory surgery (under 23 hours stay) the rational of this denial is inappropriate place of service, as they are always done inpatient. Can anybody tell me who assigns the POS for surgical procedures?? I looked on the AMA web site and they have no info regarding the various place of services:cool:
